24th Annual Evening of Hope
~ Please Join us for a Virtual Celebration~
May 20, 2021 at 7 p.m.
For 24 years the “Evening of Hope” has had a profound influence on the growth and development of the Rhode Island Chapter by establishing and supporting local patient care programs and services. It has strengthened our advocacy efforts in both Rhode Island and Washington, DC and enhanced the ability of our national association to fund significant ALS research. The chapter has been hard hit by the Covid19 crisis, but ALS does not stop, so neither can we. Your support will provide hope and fund local care service programs for ALS patients and their families.
2021 Rhode Island Chapter Evening of Hope Honorees:
The "Brian Dickinson Courage Award" ~ Robin Ramos. The "Brian Dickinson Courage Award" is presented to individuals who demonstrate tremendous faith and courage and serve as a symbol of hope for others affected by ALS.
