In 2017, I conducted an interview with Kate Miner. One question I asked:
Tell us about your involvement in Freeze HD and other ways you are trying to educate people about the disease.
Kate: We decided to host a fundraiser as a sort of coming out party to our family and friends many of whom, like us, had no idea what HD was before it affected our family. We rented out a fun music venue in Echo Park called The Bootleg Theater and proceeded to raise over 200k. The event brought out big names like Academy Award winner Annette Bening and an array of television stars. Kate Miner FB page
