EPILEPSY FOUNDATION OF FLORIDA WINS $25,000 (5/8/2011)
The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida (EFOF) was awarded $25,000 in the first round of the Chase Community Giving Spring 2011 program, and is seeking community support to win the program's $500,000 grand prize. EFOF was one of 100 first round winners nationally in the Chase Community Giving's Big Idea program, in which hundreds of thousands of charities communicated their mission and solicited votes on Facebook. Round 2 of the Chase Community Giving's Big Idea program begins May 19th and continues only through May 25th.
EFOF's chance at $500,000 will be based on the number of votes the organization receives on the Facebook page. Egozi estimates that nearly 200,000 Facebook votes will be necessary to win.
