ART WITH A HEART
A Special Evening To Raise Awareness and Funds To Fight ALS
5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 30, 2017
Ken Hendel and his sister Amy, owners of GALLERY ART, are hosting a very special event to honor Stu, their brother, who was recently diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease).
Until there's a cure, there's ALS Worldwide...
The event's purpose is to support ALS Worldwide, the only nonprofit global health organization, headquartered in the USA, that offers FREE assistance to people with ALS and their loved ones in all 50 states and in more than 115 other countries. ALS Worldwide provides compassionate care, help with symptom management, access to experimental drugs, financial assistance for ALS-related expenses, and guidance on other important healthcare topics. Learn more at alsworldwide.org. ALS Worldwide is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
This fun and meaningful event will be held at Gallery Art, a beautiful 8,000 square foot space located in Aventura, Florida that features a world class collection of modern contemporary artists such as Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, and many more. The evening will include light refreshments, music, art tours, a brief video presentation, a silent auction, and engaging speakers.
How Can You Help?
A minimum contribution of $100 is suggested. We ask you to consider giving as generously as possible. However, any size donation will make a big impact!

About Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
ALS weakens and kills nerve cells that control voluntary muscle movement. Most individuals are eventually robbed of their ability to move, speak, eat and breathe, but the disease usually leaves the mind intact. Death can occur within 2-5 years of diagnosis, but more and more individuals are living better and longer with the disease because many symptoms can be managed and certain treatments can help extend life if pursued early and actively. However, there is currently no known cure or fully effective treatment that addresses the underlying causes of ALS.
