The goal of this event is to raise money in the fight against ALS as inspired by Tim Sheehy. Tim fought a courageous battle against ALS before his passing in 2007; and like Steve Gleason, he saw the need to help those living with ALS by providing care. He created a 501(c)3 – Project Main St. that raised more than $1 million to this mission from 2006-2017. We are fortunate Project Main St. now continues this mission in a partnership with Team Gleason. Team Gleason is a 501(c)3 non-profit founded by former NFL player, Steve Gleason. After being diagnosed with ALS in 2011, Steve founded Team Gleason, an organization focused on providing an immediate impact to people living with ALS through innovative technology, adventures, equipment and care services.
With the funds raised last year, Project Main St. & Team Gleason distributed 24 grants providing direct financial assistance covering the cost of home healthcare, medical and insurance expenses and home upgrades for wheelchair accessibility. Also provided 32 communication device copays, 13 portable power wheelchairs and sent 7 families on adventures.
Over 200 guests will enjoy fabulous food, drinks, silent and live auction, and much more at the star-studded Gala on Thursday, May 30th • 6:30 – 11:30pm at The Prince George Ballroom.
Followed by the 5th annual softball tournament on Saturday, June 1st on Roosevelt Island.
