TOVA Supports The National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Not only does Innsbrook Taste of Virginia provide delectable food for you and your family, this event helps support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.  The National MS Society’s mission is: People affected by MS can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever.  Bring your friends and family to support this important cause! In 2016, a total of $15,908.00 was raised at the event to donate to Feedmore which will provide approximately 79,540 meals for children, families, and seniors who are hungry.  We could not have done it without the generous support of over 6,000 people in attendance! We would also like to thank all of the sponsors who made this event possible! Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Innsbrook’s first Taste of Virginia 2016.
