The event will be hosted by Gala chairs Clay and Gina Crumbliss, co-chairs Betsy and Phoebe Willingham, along with a team of community leaders whose families or friends have been impacted by ALS.
The evening will honor the life and memory of Betsy’s late husband and Phoebe’s father Calder Willingham.
Unfortunately Calder lost his battle with ALS in January 2010. One of Calder’s wishes was for his family and friends to help raise awareness of ALS in the Chattanooga community, and raise funds for research to help find a cure.
Today, ALS, “Lou Gehrig’s Disease” is a death sentence. It knows no boundaries-demographic, geographic, racial, and socioeconomic. Today, there is no known cure. Today there are no survivors.
If you would like to be part of the Everyday Heroes Gala and join MDA in the fight to find a cure for ALS, contact Holly Carroll, executive director of MDA 423-855-0645 or email@example.com.
Individual tickets are $150 per person and sponsorship tables begin at $2,500. The evening will begin with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner, a brief program and then dancing to The Michel Jons Band.
All proceeds go directly to research dedicated to finding a cure for ALS, which today is incurable.
