5th Annual ALS 'Virtual' Fiesta
Wednesday, August 12, 2020


COVID-19 has directly impacted the ALS community and presents new challenges for people, families, and caretakers affected by ALS. Also affected are some ways in which together, we raise money to fund the mission to support them. As a result of the pandemic, the 5th Annual ALS Fiesta dinner event that typically attracts over 250 people and which raises $100,000+ annually, cannot be held in-person this year.  

Because ALS doesn’t stop during circumstances like these, our support for people affected by ALS cannot stop, and we're moving forward with this critical fundraiser by taking our 5th Annual ALS Fiesta virtual. Transitioning to a virtual event allows the ‘celebration to go on' while getting more people involved in the Fiesta than ever before. We need and would love your support raising funds so we can continue providing critical services for the people, families, and caretakers affected by ALS.

Viewing the Fiesta is open and complimentary to all and because this is such an important fundraising event for our chapter, there will be many ways to donate including online Silent Auction, Mystery Box Shopping, and Fund the Mission (paddle raise) opportunities.

Here is how you can support:

Virtually attend the 5th Annual ALS Fiesta Please join us on Wednesday August 12, 2020 from 7:00pm-8:00pm PST for our live streamed Fiesta event. During this experience, you’ll get to hear firsthand from many of the people affected by ALS we serve, as well as from some of our ALS community’s biggest supporters in the areas of care services, advocacy, and research. Viewing the Fiesta is open and complimentary to all, the more the merrier! Click here for how to watch the live-streamed 5th Annual ALS Fiesta!

Donate Anytime today through the Fiesta, you can simply donate to help Fund the Mission - it can be a general donation in any amount. Click here to Donate.

Be a part of our Fiesta Week Help raise and spread ALS Awareness by participating in Fiesta Week August 6-13, including seven days of virtual, live, and social media activities to bring additional inspiration for the mission. Click here to learn more about Fiesta Week, complimentary and open to all.

Mission Impact: Let's come together now, separately but in unity to support our ALS community Especially in these times of challenge, programs and services to support families affected by ALS are broadly and urgently needed. The impact of the coronavirus has increased the physical, financial, and emotional burdens faced by people living with this disease tenfold. Click here to see your Mission Impact.

We could not do what we do every day without the kindness and generosity of you. Please strongly considering helping us by participating in the Fiesta and donating generously. Thank you!
