Q: Will the bar be open during the game?
A: Of course! You can support the Elmhurst American Legion with your purchase of beer ($2.75) and mixed drinks ($5.00).
Q: Did you say “prizes”?
A: Door prizes between rounds! A trophy and prize for the winning team, and the judge’s decisions are final.
Q: What’s the parking situation?
A: Plentiful and free.
Q: What is myasthenia gravis?
A: Myasthenia gravis is a rare autoimmune disease that disrupts the communication between nerve and muscles, causing sometimes severe muscle weakness. It can affect the eyes and facial muscles; swallowing and talking; limbs, neck and torso; and even breathing muscles. There are treatments, but no cure.
Q: Who is Conquer Myasthenia Gravis?
A: Formerly known as the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of Illinois, Conquer MG has served people who struggle with this challenging disease since 1976 – with programs of support, education, awareness, and research funding.
