Every Spring, the Foundation hosts the Hope Through Caring Award Dinner. This night includes a reception, live and silent auction, dinner and dancing. The highlight of the evening is the presentation of the Hope Through Caring Award. This award was established in 1988 to honor those whose commitment to the fight against ALS has helped raise funds for research, provide services for patients and their families, and increase public awareness.
Our thanks to everyone involved for a great evening at the 26th Annual Hope Through Caring Award Dinner. Special thanks to our honoree, Dr. Scott Heller, and his family; dinner chairperson Ken Hoffman, as well as our entire executive committee and our table sponsors; our live and silent auction donors; Jonathan Eig, host; and those who participated in the evening's program.
This event has raised over $450,000 already--and that total continues to climb. If you were unable to attend, there is still time to make a donation in honor of Dr. Scott Heller. Please use our 2013 Hope Through Caring donation form. Thanks to a $15,000 challenge grant by an anonymous donor, you can double your gift in honor of Dr. Scott Heller! Every $1 raised by new donors will be matched, up to $15,000! That means that six additional ALS patients can have wheelchair ramps installed in their homes. Or we can provide three additional months of respite care. Or we can provide transportation to and from the Les Turner/Lois Insolia ALS Center for an additional 15 patients.
What better way to honor the dedication of Dr. Scott Heller than by doubling the value of your gift. Please give today.
