ALS Field of Dreams Gala

About This Project

ALS Field of Dreams Galas – ­ ‐ Durham, NC

Our first ever non-­profit event and boy was it a HUGE success with the help of Cal Ripkin, Jr., Curt Schilling, Tommy John, Mrs. Helen (Catfish) Hunter and Clyde King to name a few. With an attendance of 500 we raised more than $400,000 through corporate table sales and silent auction for the Inaugural event. Each gala following, more celebrity guests (Dean Smith, Gaylord Perry, Bobby Richardson) attended (at no charge), and raised more awareness for this disease through awareness campaigns that allowed this Chapter to stay open, expand their services AND open & fund four (4) ALS Certified Clinics in the State of North Carolina -­ Wake Forest, Duke, Greenville & Charlotte.
