Dishing Up Support for Fight Against Multiple Sclerosis
A tasty spring fundraiser benefiting the National MS Society, Colorado-Wyoming Chapter
Polish up those forks and because this spring MAD Greens and the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society, Colorado-Wyoming Chapter, are teaming up for a tasty spring fundraiser. During the month of April 2016, MAD Greens is donating $1 from every seasonal Doc Holliday salad sold to the MS Society.

MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. The MS Society mobilizes people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS.
“Supporting the National MS Society is a cause near and dear to our hearts," says MAD Greens Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer Marley Hodgson. "The number of people living with MS is staggering and it especially prevalent in Colorado. We are proud to contribute to the support programs and research that will benefit so many people and help create a world free of MS.”
MAD Greens chose the Doc Holliday salad for the special fundraising event because it’s the newest seasonal salad on the Colorado menu, brimming with baby greens, red grapes, oranges, citrus chicken, red onions, MAD Spice pumpkin seeds and a house-made Miso Sesame Vinaigrette. “It’s a refreshing springtime salad that our guests will feel good about, not just because they’re eating better, but because they’re helping to improve the health and wellbeing of those living with MS,” said Hodgson.

“We are grateful for MAD Greens’ continued support of the National MS Society, their focus on health and wellness is a perfect fit with our organizational goals and those living with MS. Their commitment to our mission is truly valued,” said Kristin Gibbs, EVP of Development with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Colorado-Wyoming Chapter.
