According to the ALS Association, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Also known commonly as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS usually strikes people between the ages of 40 and 70. Although there is not yet a cure or treatment that halts or reverses ALS, scientists have made significant progress in learning more about this disease.

Doors open at 7 P.M. for Friday's 18-and-over fundraiser and the laughs begin at 8. Tickets are $25; snacks will be provided, there will be raffles, a 50-50, an auction & a cash bar. You can become an event sponsor for $100.
