Approximately 100 people participated in an event Wednesday evening to help raise awareness of ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. Local organizers wanted the opportunity to honor patients and families affected by ALS in this area. Balloons were released honoring those who have been affected. Fund raising was kicked off this past March with a spaghetti feed sponsored by the Interact Club. They raised $5,700 with that event. A Facebook page was then started and an additional $3,000 came in through that. As of Wednesday morning, they had raised a total of $21,045, not including any funds contributed at last evening's event.
