The 5th Annual ALS Fiesta dinner will be hosted virtually this year. Because ALS doesn’t stop during a pandemic, support for those affected by ALS can't stop either. The Fiesta typically attracts over 250 people and raises $100,000+ annually, and while it cannot be held in-person this year, the virtual event allows the celebration to go on and get more people than ever involved. If you are able, we would love your support in raising the funds needed to continue providing critical services for families, and caretakers affected by ALS.

How can I help the Mission Impact? We’re all facing some very challenging times and our programs and services to support families affected by ALS are broadly and urgently needed right now. The impact of the Coronavirus has increased the physical, financial, and emotional burdens faced by our friends living with this disease tenfold. You can help us make sure they all get the care they deserve. Click here to see your Mission Impact.
