Sports & Sparkle BIAWE Gala a Success

Windsor TBI lawyer Greg MonfortonThe Brain Injury Association of Windsor/Essex County (BIAWE) had enormous success with its second annual Sports & Sparkle: The Main Event gala, held April 11 at the Caboto Club of Windsor.

As a titanium-level sponsor of the fundraiser, Greg Monforton & Partners is very proud that BIAWE's efforts were received so warmly by the public.

The event featured dinner, dancing and a silent auction, all to benefit brain injury survivors through BIAWE. Masters of Ceremony Karen Hall and Ryan Donally presided over the festivities and guests ranging from sports stars to students and representatives from Greg Monforton & Partners were all in attendance.

Sustaining a brain injury actually increases the odds of experiencing a second brain injury, or sustaining other bodily harm.

A performance by the Emerald Isle Dance Society livened up the evening and press coverage by The Windsor Star made sure to spread the word about BIAWE's cause.

Our firm is so thankful for the chance to support BIAWE and offer help to the survivors of brain injury in Windsor and Essex counties. Greg Monforton & Partners is particularly invested in educating the public about the effects of brain injury and traumatic brain injury (TBI) because it is the leading cause of death and disability for Canadians under 40 years of age.

What You May Not Know About Brain Injury

Even though it affects a great number of Canadians, many people are not informed about the realities of brain injury.

For instance, the prevailing notion is that TBI results from being knocked out or concussed to the point of complete blackout, but a person does not have to become unconscious to sustain a brain injury.

TBI and mild brain injury can occur as a result of something as common as a car accident, but too often victims and their families feel isolated in their experience, and many do not feel that they have adequate resources to take care of the survivor.

Sustaining a brain injury actually increases the odds of experiencing a second brain injury, or sustaining other bodily harm.

We are proud to be partners with BIAWE and we encourage everyone to support this worthy cause.
