Thank you to all those who attended and supported FRAME’s annual fundraising event, Under the Stars 2023, on April 27, 2023 at the beautiful Bryant Park Grill in New York City.
A special thank you to our Platinum Sponsors, WWT, Norman Marcus Pain Institute, and the Ken and Julia Lowe Family Foundation.
Also in attendance were our other sponsors, Vaso, Armis, Accenture, Allymar, the Wood Family, and Mackensie Uhlan and Tyler Moeller.
FRAME held a silent auction with over 15 items, including a week long trip in Upper Peninsula Michigan, a 40 year old BlackBull Whiskey, gift cards to various restaurants, personal training sessions, and signed sports memorabilia.
Emceeing the event was Mentalist Brian McGovern, who wowed the crowd with close-up magic. Speakers included Aidan Wood, who spoke of his difficult journey in finding relief for his pain, Dr. Norman Marcus, who presented the first Hans Kraus Award (see more at new website), Gayle Sirard and Dr. Cecil Lynch, who discussed the current and future research projects at FRAME, and Mandy Garten, who closed the night with many thanks.
Live music was provided by Mike Bennett & The SoulGlo Orchestra.
All proceeds went directly to FRAME, whose mission is to perform groundbreaking research on muscle pain.
The foundation was created to address the problem that even though muscles are the most common reason for low back and other pain complaints, most doctors tend to overlook this organ system.
