ALS is a degenerative neurological disease that leads to progressive weakness. ALS does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, nationality, or economic status. The cause of ALS is still unknown, and there is no cure... However, there is hope.

3rd Annual Gala of Hope

Over 400 people joined us for the beautiful 3rd Annual Gala of Hope on Saturday, February 23 at Vie on North Broad Street in Philadelphia.Together, we raised over $72,000 to support the MDA/ALS Center of Hope, education and research initiatives. 

The evening was truly a success  and we are deeply grateful for the generosity of our guests and supporters. Dr. Robert Sinnottthe evening’s guest speaker, shared a very heartfelt message of hope and what it meant to him as a person battling this disease. Most importantly, Bob shared an encouraging message, “To love harder." We are thankful for the success of this event and look forward to next year’s Gala!
