Description

Tara, Brian & their family need our help!

As most of you know, a year ago our dear friend Tara was diagnosed with ALS and sadly it has progressed quickly. For those of you who are not familiar with ALS, it stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. ALS often begins with muscle twitching and weakness in a limb, or slurred speech. Eventually, ALS affects control of the muscles needed to move, speak, eat, and breathe. There is no cure for ALS, and eventually the disease is fatal.

Since Tara's symptoms started just over a year ago, numerous treatment options have been sought/tried, but unfortunately the disease has progressed so quickly that Brian has decided to stay home full time to take care of Tara & their family for the past 3 months. It has been an expensive year for them, as they have been trying everything in hopes to beat this awful illness. Tara is very grateful for the ALS Society and all they cover, but it is really only a drop in the bucket.


We have decided to support the family through a Fondue-raiser! Please join us for a 4 course fondue dinner with choice of Beer or Wine pairing. All proceeds from the dinner (minus tax & gratuity) will go directly to Tara and her family.


Thank you!
