The Huntington’s Disease Society
of America Northeast Ohio Chapter
"Blue Jean Ball"



Trey Gray, drummer for country music’s Brooks & Dunn and national spokesman for the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, was the special guest at the Blue Jean Ball benefiting the HDSA Northeast Ohio Chapter.
Nicole Visconsi Mawby, whose mother succumbed to the degenerative brain disorder, was honorary chairman of the Western-theme party held at Country Lakes in Broadview Heights. More than 170 people donned blue jeans, boots and Stetsons for the festive event that included dinner and silent and live auctions featuring autographed guitars from Brooks & Dunn and Trey Gray and a cowboy hat autographed by George Strait.
Introduced by Chapter President Wes Johnston, Trey Gray shared his story of being diagnosed at age 33 after his mother’s diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, an inherited disorder for which there is no known cause or cure. Its progression leads to loss of both cognition and physical control. With high spirits and energy, Wes autographed drumsticks, bought for $20 a pair, before sitting in for a few sets with vocalist Logan Wells and guitarist Tim Tucker. Proceeds from the event will be used for research for Huntington’s Disease, potentially affecting 250,000 people. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY KATHRYN RIDDLE
