Gala Thank You

Thank you to those who attended our Light the Journey Gala. We raised an incredible $292,000 to sustain the programs and services of our Chapter and to sponsor ALS research. This was an all-time revenue record for this event! Through the generosity of attendees, we made a difference for the people we serve. We recently received the photos from the night, and would like to share them with you in this online photo album

Funds raised at this event are put to work in our communities to help people living with ALS and their families and also in the research centers to help find treatments and ultimately a cure for this disease.  Attendees met Carl Nowlin and learned about his journey with ALS. After hearing about his journey, we raised an amazing $100,000 for research. Thank you to all our sponsors and especially to the gala honorary chairs, John and Margie Wiehoff. Their commitment and support of the event is greatly appreciated. We were also thrilled to honor Cathy Wurzer for her contributions to the Chapter by raising awareness for ALS. 

We're looking forward to seeing many of you at next year's Light the Journey Gala at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis on October 28, 2016!
