The bracelets are a donation of only $25 each! 100% of the $25 donation benefits MGA, through the amazing generosity of board member Jo Beth Barr, and her wonderful gift shop Ooh La La in Washington, PA. Call the MGA office 412-566-1545 to order. (Mail orders - add $1.)

Handmade Greeting Cards

Our dear friend Jo Beth from Ooh La La Boutique (1445 Washington Road, Washington, PA 15301) commissioned a local artist to design these lovely handmade greeting cards with Myasthenia Gravis Association of Western Pennsylvania in mind. Each card features a petite butterfly reminiscent of our logo. Choose from all occasion cards or holiday greetings. Both selections are packaged in bundles of six cards with matching envelopes. These sets make beautiful gifts as well as a nice addition to your personal stationary. All proceeds benefit MGA. $18 per set.
