Game On! is The ALS Association’s premier dinner event, combining fun and fundraising in one elaborate extravaganza. This energetic party will continue to be a “Game Changer”, carrying on the momentum of the Ice Bucket Bash, and positively impacting the future of the ALS landscape.

Guests can anticipate a whimsical event inspired by the popular game show, Family Feud. Two teams made up of local celebrities and guests will compete, with guests supporting them prior to start with a paddle raise style auction. This will be an exciting night with a live and silent auction, celebrity incentives, and tough competition! Guests can also buy their way onto a celebrity team to be a part of the fun. The team that raises the most money gets points added to their team score BEFORE the game begins, and the team with the most points at the end of the night will be crowned the winner.

Sponsored by AeroCharter. For more information or to sponsor the event contact Elizabeth Roe at or visit


The 26th Annual Swing for a Cure Golf Tournament was a wonderful day of golf, community, and even some lighting, all to aid us in our work to create a world without ALS. A lot of hard work went into making the golf tournament happen and we would like to sincerely thank all of the golfers, volunteers and sponsors for their participation. Because of your commitment to this important cause we were able to break records and raise over $111,000 for local patient care services, advocacy and cutting-edge research.
