Brain Injury: 2016 BIST/OBIA Mix & Mingle Raises Close to $157,000

On June 8, the Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA) and the Brain Injury Society of Toronto (BIST) hosted the 12th annual BIST/OBIA Mix & Mingle at the Steamwhistle Brewery in downtown Toronto. The event attracted hundreds of professionals who work with survivors of acquired brain injury and raised approximately $157,000. The OBIA took the opportunity to raise awareness of their Concussion Hits Home campaign, which brings to light the serious issue of concussions and brain injuries linked to domestic violence. During her presentation, OBIA Executive Director Ruth Wilcock directed attendees' attention to a number of troubling statistics, including the fact that 67 per cent of women who suffered domestic abuse reported residual problems that were potentially head-injury related. "The goal of the Concussion Hits Home campaign is to increase awareness and education about brain injury related to domestic violence in hopes that victims will be able to receive the appropriate treatment and support," Wilcock said. Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers' Managing Partner Greg Neinstein has acted as chair of the event for the past seven years, during which time the Mix & Mingle has raised well over $500,000. "I'm proud to be involved in such a successful event and I hope to continue giving back to such a noteworthy cause," Neinstein said. Through education, awareness, support and advocacy, both the OBIA and BIST work to enhance the lives of Torontonians and Ontarians living with the effects of ABI. Thanks to all of this year's attendees, and see you next year!
