FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- National Multiple Sclerosis Education and Awareness Month® (#NMSEAM) was created to promote and raise awareness, provide education and assistance to those who have this chronic illness and their families who are affected by it. "Education and awareness for MS is extremely important as it's often overlooked and misunderstood," said Nathalie Sloane, Development Director for The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

The party is in honor of Jersey Mike's "Month of Giving" for supporting #4MSF. Chanel from Mega 94.9 and 93.9 WMIA will be on site with their promotion team and prizes. Celebrity guests includes NBC'S THE VOICE and #TEAMSHAKIRA Monique Abbadie, who recently debuted her song "No Fear" in honor of MS, as well as Olympic Gold Medalist Boxer & CEO of Fight Time Promotions, Howard Davis Jr, who was recently inducted into the Florida Boxing Hall of fame.

On March 14th, the iconic downtown Fort Lauderdale 110 Tower building will display the Blue/Orange/Yellow colored lights around the top of the building in honor of #NMSEAM.
