Schurig Center for Brain Injury Recovery, Marin’s only nonprofit helping people adjust to life changes after a brain injury, concussion or stroke, hosted its 11th Annual Gala on May 11 at the Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross. The celebration raised over $193,000 to benefit the center’s array of rehabilitative and supportive services as well as scholarship funds that provide access to care for clients living on low income.
At the event, Schurig Center presented the Creating Connections Award to Kavie von Husen, brain injury professional and center volunteer for over 25 years, and Midge Casler, Schurig Center’s art program director for 16 years. The Creating Connections Award honors those who have made significant contributions in improving the quality of life for people impacted by a brain injury.
Each year, Schurig Center provides services to over 480 survivors and family members to help them stay connected and continue to recover as they adjust to life after injury.
