Seas the Day, Arthritis Ball 2014 will honor Linda Spindel at its gala event, which includes cocktails, a program, live and silent auctions, a seated dinner and dancing.

“About nine years ago, my niece, Stephanie, returning from her honeymoon, was suddenly unable to walk. After many doctors’ visits, she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. She has been on so many medications, been through so many procedures, and has suffered more than anyone I’ve known. It has been so difficult to watch the progression of this horrible disease,” says Spindel.

“About three years ago, I received a frantic phone call from my son Kevin. After he regained his composure, he told me he had just had an appointment with his doctor and he too, has Rheumatoid Arthritis.”

Spindel is a past president of Ohef Sholom Temple and Jewish Family Service, among her many volunteer positions. She says that the Arthritis Foundations offers her an opportunity to help impact “the lives of people in my family.”

The event takes place at Sheraton Oceanfront Hotel. Call (757) 456-1119 for tickets and sponsorship opportunities.
