Gaithersburg restaurant hosts fundraiser for rare disorder

Gaithersburg / Montgomery Village / Germantown / Poolesville

TALK OF THE TOWN
Jennifer McKnight tirelessly planned and collected donations for the second annual “Meals for Maddie” fundraiser on Wednesday, Nov. 12, at The Grille in Gaithersburg to help raise money for Rettsyndrome.org on behalf of her niece, Madlynn, who suffers from the disorder. “Rett syndrome is a postnatal, neurological disorder that occurs almost exclusively in females,” Melissa Florio, the development coordinator at the nonprofit Rettsyndrome.org, said. “It becomes apparent between six and 18 months, they develop normally up until that point and then parents notice they lose the skills they had known.”
