National MS Society On the Move Luncheon to Feature Country Music Artist

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will host the 8th Annual On the Move Luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton Dallas on Friday, October 10 from 11:30am-1:00pm. The annual luncheon, which raises funds and awareness for multiple sclerosis will feature Country Music Artist Julie Roberts. Diagnosed with MS at the age of 27, Roberts is building awareness of the disease through National MS Society events. Additionally, she donated a portion of sales from her latest album to the Society to support research and programs to help people living with MS. 
Having already spent much of her life singing and performing, Roberts first stepped into the national spotlight with 2004’s self-titled debut album. Fueled by the top 20 Country smash, “Break Down Here,” “JULIE ROBERTS” quickly earned RIAA gold for sales in excess of 500,000, as well as a plethora of critical praise.
 
Roberts took a brief hiatus from music to recharge her batteries and confront a number of personal challenges. She returned stronger than ever with 2011’s “ALIVE” and the “WHO NEEDS MISTLETOE?” holiday EP, both released via her own independent Ain’t Skeerd Records.  Now, with the imminent release of “GOOD WINE AND BAD DECISIONS,” Roberts is eagerly anticipating a full-scale return to the road.
 
Serving as Honorary Chair for this year’s luncheon is Mrs. Suzanne Robertson with current event sponsors including Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Gold Metal Recyclers and Nothing Bundt Cakes – Dallas.
 
On the Move is a nationwide program created to raise funds and awareness for multiple sclerosis. Each year, On the Move luncheons bring men and women together to encourage people to give from the heart to support their family members, friends and colleagues whose lives are touched by MS and educate communities about multiple sclerosis.

Sponsorships, individual tickets and tables are available at onthemovetx.org; ticket purchase is required to attend the luncheon.
