The Alabama Chapter of the ALS Association will mark a decade of service to those who suffer with Lou Gehrig’s disease with a “Wine and Dine for ALS” fundraising event on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at the Jackson Center in Huntsville.

Enjoy a champagne reception and an elegant four course menu paired with exquisite wines as well as participate in both a Live and Silent Auction to bid on elegant jewelry, vacations, wines, dining venues, and much more.

The event will also remember and honor the courage of friends who have battled ALS. All of the proceeds will go to aid in the many local care services that are provided by the ALS Association Alabama Chapter headquartered in Huntsville.
The local ALS Chapter provides support groups for patients, families, and caregivers, along with home visits, respite care, and equipment loans – all at no cost to the patients and families. The organization also provides access to a nationally certified multi-disciplinary ALS Care Clinic at Crestwood Medical Center in Huntsville.

ALS is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that attacks the nerves responsible for voluntary muscle function. In the United States, over 5,600 people are diagnosed with the disease every year. Currently, there is no known cure.
