Barrow Women’s Board

The Women's Board of the Barrow Neurological Foundation

Get Involved

The Women’s Board of Barrow Neurological Foundation raises funds for research conducted at Barrow Neurological Institute.

Established in 1965, the Women’s Board has raised over $83 million for Barrow Neurological Institute through the annual Barrow Grand Ball. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Barrow Grand Ball, “A Grand Toast to Barrow,” was held in virtual format, raising a record-breaking $8.5 million for neurological research.

The Women’s Board also hosts an annual Education Enrichment Evening. During this event, donors and members of the community have the opportunity to hear directly from doctors and researchers and to learn about the vital, cutting-edge research happening every day at Barrow Neurological Institute.

The current Chair of the Women’s Board is Carrie Hall, with Jacquie Dorrance and Katie Mueller serving as the 2022 Barrow Grand Ball Co-Chairs. The 2022 Barrow Grand Ball will be held on Saturday, January 22, 2022.
