A Community High Jazz Combo will provide entertainment throughout the evening. We will also draw one adult and one youth prize from the raffle tickets participants have filled out at our many events this year. Dinner will include appetizers, your choice of a chicken or vegetarian entrée, beverages and dessert. Cocktail attire. Please note that gala registration will close on November 4.

Other fun activities will be happening, too, but most importantly, the evening will be a wonderful opportunity for us to come together as a compassionate community to recognize how far we’ve come in the past ten years; having raised over half a million dollars for cutting-edge ALS research while actively engaging in the fight against ALS. We look forward to seeing you there!
