TEMPE, AZ , June 30, 2017 (Newswire.com) - The Thrive Events President, recently announced that the team would volunteer for Bite Nite Phoenix to raise awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The event takes place on June 3.
“This event is just one of the many ways in which our Thrive Events team will give back to our community this year,” she stated. “We’re looking forward to assisting with this signature event, which will raise funds to research a cure for this progressive neurological disease.”
As she explained, Bite Nite will benefit The ALS Association Arizona Chapter. “This is the ninth year for the event, which began in 2009,” she said. “The evening is replete with great food, wonderful cocktails, and live entertainment. The dishes are prepared from some of our region’s most renowned chefs, so you know the food will be beyond tasty.”
"The key to successfully giving back is to align with an organization that shares your values."
“Each year, the ALS Association Arizona Chapter assists 400 people throughout the state who are afflicted with this disease,” she added. “The average cost to care for a person suffering from this disease is $200,000. Funds raised at this event go to both research and providing support for families who are caring for loved ones with ALS.”
She added that Thrive Events associates would be assisting the Bite Nite organizers with other practical needs during the evening. “We told them to put us to work wherever we would best be of help,” she said.
