2019 Charity Fundraiser at PSS

Since we are providing this event free, we would like to ask your support in raising funds to support an ALS Fundraiser in honor of our founder, Addison Bell. Mr. Bell passed away from ALS in 2015. Your support will help the ALS Association North Carolina chapter, where everything they do supports the discovery of effective treatments and a cure for ALS. The Chapter supports nearly 800 families per year who are currently struggling with their battle against ALS. Our goal is to raise $10,000.
