Lyme and other tick borne illnesses have become, and continue to be, a major health concern in New Jersey. In New Jersey alone, the total Lyme cases reported by the CDC from 1995 – 2011 were 52,334. An organization, the John Drulle, M.D. Memorial Lyme Fund, Inc., funds tick ecology and prevention research. That being said, the 9th annual Great Imitator Fundraiser will be held at Jenkinson’s Pavilion in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ, on Sunday, October 26, 2014 to unite Lyme Disease sufferers, their families and other interested parties! The proceeds from this fundraiser will be used for awareness, prevention and educational materials in spreading the word about these devastating diseases and for further funding of grants in prevention research!
