Dinner will feature a chicken barbecue. There will also be raffles, a silent auction, entertainment and giveaways.

“The donations to the auction have been overwhelming thus far,” said volunteer Kelly Murphy. “Donations have been pouring in locally, throughout the state and even as far as the West Coast.”

Donated items include a “California Package” with lodging at the Beverly Hills Hotel and two tickets to see music performer Brad Paisely. 

Funds raised during the Motorcycle Rally and Poker Run will go directly to supporting David and Michael.

The Walk of Hope ALS research fundraiser is being held today at Trinity Park in Plattsburgh. Organizers across the state are hoping to raise $100,000 nationally and also raise awareness of ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and all neurodegenerative diseases.
