A Star-Studded Evening To Fight Disease
Project A.L.S., founded by Jenifer Estess, is a non-profit organization devoted to understanding, treating, and ultimately, curing ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) — also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALS is a devastating neurodegenerative disease that (combined with the closely-related Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease) are a 21st Century health crisis. In ten years, 1-in-25 American’s will be affected with a neurodegenerative disease.
The evening honored Project A.L.S. co-chair F. Jonathan Dracos for his achievements in Leadership and also presented the Inaugural Tom Kirchoff Family Post-Doctoral Fellowship. The evening was topped off with a celebrity version of the “Family Feud.” The “Tomorrow is Tonight” event at Cipriani netted over $1 million for research.
