Charity Casino Night This Friday Will Raise Money To Fight ALS

Monday, January 13, 2020

The ALS Association Tennessee Chapter will bring the third annual "All in for ALS," a charity casino night, to the Chattanooga market this Friday. The event will take place at Stratton Hall and will be hosted by WRCB Channel 3 Eyewitness News Anchor/Reporter Michelle Heron. 

The night will be filled with authentic casino games with professional dealers, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and photo booth, all to support those battling ALS. 

"ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord," organizers said. "Eventually people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis. The simple fact is, ALS can strike anyone, anytime. 

"Living with ALS, or taking care of someone diagnosed with ALS, is beyond the true understanding of most people who are not facing it. The challenges seem endless, and the resources are many times not enough. The event will be an evening filled with hope as dollars are raised to help close some of this resource gap and offer another lifeline of support to everyone touched by ALS."

The event is being sponsored by Edwards Construction, The Mark Hite Team, Numotion, Hearth Hospice, Erlanger, Garden Plaza at Greenbriar Cove, Junior’s Building Material, Hank’s Carpet, A-1 Kitchen and Bath and Kindred Hospice.

Warren Mackey: Why I Will Be Voting For County Commissioner Discretionary Spending

Because I am taking the lead on the County Commission in reinstating discretionary money, I take it that a Commissioner’s comments in the Chattanoogan.Com on July 13 where he asserts that giving discretionary money is a way of currying favor with voters in the next election was aimed at me. We haven’t had discretionary money for over five years now. In spite of not having the ... (click for more)
