Multiple Sclerosis Fundraising Event to Feature Gena Rowlands

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On October 17, East Brunswick native Kevin Goetz, will return home to New Jersey to host a celebrity cocktail reception at the Canoe Brook Country Club in Summit. The reception will raise money for National MS Society's New Jersey Metro Chapter In-Home Care Program that serves 14 counties in New Jersey, where it is estimated that almost 10,000 people have MS.

Mr. Goetz is the founder of his own non-profit organization - The Rhoda Goetz Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis. He began the Foundation in memory of his mother who suffered with the disease and was a resident of New Jersey for more than 25 years. He serves on the board of trustees of the Southern California Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and is thrilled to have the opportunity to host an event that will make a difference in the lives of so many affected by multiple sclerosis in New Jersey.

Actress Gena Rowlands will accompany Kevin to New Jersey for the event. Ms. Rowlands is recognized as an actress of rare accomplishment and talent. She is also one of the entertainment industry's stars who is constantly in demand in theater, film and television. She recently starred in the highly successful film The Notebook and has a long, accomplished and award winning career.

The goal of the event is to raise money for the chapter's In-Home Care Program. The program provides financial assistance for in home care to those who require assistance in their morning, afternoon and/or evening routines to prevent or delay premature institutionalization and to bolster self confidence. The assistance includes, but not be limited to help with bathing, dressing, grooming and meal preparation (and other activities of daily living). Many of those who are living with MS and have physical disabilities as a result of their disease require the assistance of trained home health aides for some part of the day. They are disabled either from an exacerbation (a flare-up of symptoms) or because their MS has progressed to cause a state of disability.

In-home health care is very expensive and usually not covered by health insurance. Families often do not have the ability to pay for these types of service which is why it is crucial for the Chapter to be able to continue to fund such basic needs.
