Benefitting:  Haley's Hope - Haley's Hope was established in honor of a beloved daughter, sister, and friend—Haley Stevens—who was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 16. During her short battle, her family and friends knew that the only way to help others afflicted with this awful disease was to start raising money to help others afflicted with this in our area.  Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
