National Multiple Sclerosis Society Fundraiser Scheduled for March 12 in Cuba NY


After canceling the annual event in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, holistic health practitioners, psychics, mediums, healers, and spirit artists, as well as vendors and artists of spiritual, metaphysical products and personal care items, will join together again on March 12, 2022, to present the Mystic Spirit Holistic Wellness Fair. The event is hosted by MS Walk Team Michelle’s Supporters and will be held from 10:00 am- 4:00 pm at the VFW Reception Hall at 5425 Route 305, Cuba, NY.

This family-friendly event can be found on Facebook by searching “Mystic Sprit Holistic Wellness Fair.”  The Cuba VFW is a wheelchair accessible facility. 

Guests are asked to give a $5 donation at the door. There will be raffles throughout the day. Tickets will be sold for the multi-item raffle at $5 per sheet with prizes donated by multiple vendors.  Services are purchased from individual vendors and prices are set by each vendor. All proceeds will be donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society MS Walk 2022.

Guests will be required to follow current COVID safety protocols established by the VFW. Masks are required to enter and while moving about the venue.

Coffee, pastries, cookies and a variety of sandwiches will be available for purchase, supplied by The Perfect Blend Coffeehouse and Eatery.

The team is also seeking volunteers during the fair and for clean-up. Organizers welcome students 16 years and older to volunteer as an excellent opportunity to help raise funds that will aid in research and services for people living with multiple sclerosis.

Team Michelle’s Supporters was named after its founder, Michelle Clark, who grew up in Cuba, diagnosed with MS in 2002. Although the team isn’t as robust and active at the annual walk every year, they still band together to hold fundraisers.  Since 2003, the team has raised over $85,000 for the annual MS Walk to support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s advocacy efforts to fund research, education and support for MS patients and their families. The Mystic Spirit holistic Wellness Fair has raised $5,269 over three annual events that started in 2018.

Multiple sclerosis is a long-lasting disease that affects each individual in a different way.  The brain, spinal cord and optic nerve are particularly vulnerable, as the immune system attacks a fatty material called the myelin sheath, a type of coating on the nerve, causing damage to the nerve conduction.  Patients often experience problems with vision, balance, muscle control, and other basic body functions.  For more information or ways to support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in your community, visit
