"Trish MS Research Foundation Ball"

Dear Paul,
Roy and I are personally extremely grateful for your significant and professional contribution to the success of the Trish Foundation’s Crystal Ball – A brighter future for people with MS.

On behalf of the Board of the Trish Multiple Sclerosis Research Foundation, people who are suffering from this debilitating disease and Australia’s dedicated MS researchers,
our heartfelt gratitude Paul. We have had a tremendous amount of positive and glowing feed-back and we really
appreciate all the time, effort and expertise you all put into the absolutely fantastic segment The Shuffle Kings and friends. There were literally dozens upon dozens of wonderful comments about the very special music you all provided in entertaining our guests Paul. We are truly indebted to all of you for your professional contribution to the success of our Ball and for your
enormous skills, talent and expertise. You all really lifted the profile of our Crystal Ball Paul and provided such magnificent entertainment for our guests.

Roy is still working on the figures, so is yet to determine how much was raised at our Crystal Ball. However, the funds raised at our Crystal Ball to assist Australia’s scientists find the cure for MS will enable us to pass $1.6 million raised for research and we are VERY, VERY grateful for your very significant and professional contribution Paul.

It is heartening to know that the Trish Foundation is making such a significant contribution to MS research in Australia, but we can’t do that without support and Paul, we truly appreciate your absolutely magnificent and professional support in providing such brilliant entertainment for our guests.

With multiple sclerosis increasing in prevalence at a frightening rate we are determined to continue to pursue our goal. We are passionate about saving others from all Trish endured. We thought Graham Tribe’s words, “I think we are all looking for confidence these days and the Trish Foundation has been a pioneer in Australia for the hope and confidence that MS can be solved” were inspiring for everyone at our Ball.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Paul to you and your fellow musicians for your very special and professional contribution to the success of our Crystal Ball as we strive to deliver Freedom from MS. We really are very, very grateful.

Best wishes,

Carol Langsford
