SEATTLE – The Pink Door is throwing a Festa per la Salute! or “Party for Health” to help solve the mystery of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a chronic and often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system, which may include a condition called Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency, or CCSVI.
The Pink Door owner Jacqueline Roberts, recently diagnosed with this complex and unpredictable disease is personally committed to furthering the education and research of CCSVI as it relates to Multiple Sclerosis.
Festa Per La Salute! will feature a sumptuous feast of fresh Northwest seafood, Pink Door Lasagne, grilled veggies and over flowing wines… along with The Pink Door’s usual cacophony of trapeze artists, jazz musicians, accordions, modern dancers, prosciutto slicers and bodacious beauties passing oysters… and of course those beautiful views of Elliott Bay from the deck.
Roberts has pledged 70 percent of all proceeds from the event to the University at Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center (BNAC) and its groundbreaking MS -CCSVI research.

Representatives from the University at Buffalo will be at The Pink Door to discuss their studies of the possibility that symptoms of MS result from the narrowing of the primary veins outside the skull, a condition called Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency, or CCSVI. The BNAC’s 1,700-person research study will verify Dr. Paolo Zamboni's ground-breaking CCSVI theory on which he based his balloon angioplasty procedure to treat venous constriction. Dr. Zamboni has found that the majority of his patients experienced a decrease in MS symptoms. In fact, Zamboni’s wife, who had MS for 17 years, is free of symptoms four years after treatment.

About The Pink Door
In 1981, a whimsically inclined twenty-something Italian American ingénue put her creative hooks and inspiration from travels abroad into a surreal cellar of a space that became equal parts Bohemian loft, Trattoria, and Pigalle cabaret. “La Padrona” Jacqueline Roberts wasted no time filling the space with nuances, a seasonally changing menu of hearty, honest Italian food and wine, spirited service, and eccentric alluring entertainment. Some twenty seven years later, The Pink Door (http://www.thepinkdoor.net/
) remains a Seattle favorite with a fresh, constantly changing seasonal menu and eclectic nightly entertainment.
