The Gala is an evening supporting Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (“ALS”) research and honoring all of our fallen heroes, as well as those heroes who are currently battling ALS. The event was started in loving memory of one of our own local heroes, Calder Willingham. One of Calder’s last wishes was for his family and friends to continue the fight against ALS by educating the community, providing hope to ALS families, and raising research dollars to put an end to this disease. Funds raised at the Gala are earmarked by the ALS Division of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, which leads the worldwide search for treatment and a cure for ALS.
There will be live music featuring The Malemen Show Band.
