Cure SMA is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the treatment and cure of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)—a disease that takes away a person’s ability to walk, eat, or breathe. 8 million Americans carry the gene that causes SMA , and it is the number one genetic cause of death for infants.
The Muscles for Mckenna Gala is an annual fundraiser, held in the Philadelphia area, in honor of Mckenna Ellixson. The goal of the gala is to raise awareness and fund a cure for spinal muscular atrophy.
As the graphic designer for the Muscles for Mckenna Gala committee, I am responsible for all print designs. Between August 2015 and March 2016, I will be designing the save the date, invitation, program, flyers, and event signage.
