ARMONK, N.Y. – The Global Lyme Alliance (GLA) has scheduled its annual Shop for a Cure event from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Thursday, May 5 at Breezemont Day Camp in Armonk.

GLA, the nation’s leading tick-borne disease organization, is dedicated to supporting Lyme and tick-borne disease research and education and has scheduled 15 women’s, children’s and home vendors to participate in the fundraiser. The event is the Greenwich-Conn.-based nonprofit’s fourth such event.

In addition to merchandise that will be for sale, attendees also will have the opportunity to enter raffles to win a variety of prizes, including gift certificates to local shops and restaurants.

“The Shop for a Cure event is a great way for everyone in the community to get involved and help us raise money for the cause,” said Alyssa Sokoloff, event organizer and GLA Board of Directors member. “While I have personally suffered from this terrible disease and the myriad of Lyme disease’s debilitating symptoms, it is the hope of preventing anyone else from facing what I have that drives me to raise awareness of Lyme and all tick- borne illnesses.”

According to GLA, more than 300,000 Americans are infected with Lyme disease each year. The illness, which often goes undetected, can cause a number of life-debilitating and potentially deadly conditions.

GLA, formed by the merger of Lyme Research Alliance (LRA) and Tick-Borne Disease Alliance (TBDA). For more information on the group, visit its website or call 203-969-1333.
