Les Turner ALS Events

Hope Through Caring Gala

Every Spring, the Foundation hosts the Hope Through Caring Award Gala. The Hope Through Caring award was established in 1988 to honor those whose extraordinary commitment to the fight against ALS has helped raise funds for research and clinical care, provide services for patients and their families and increase public awareness. The festive evening includes a reception, balloon raffle, dinner and dancing.

2017 Hope Through Caring Gala

The Les Turner ALS Foundation is proud to honor Ken Hoffman, President of the Board of Directors, at the 2017 Hope Through Caring Gala on Saturday, February 25. Ken is being honored for his profound commitment to ensuring someday in the near distance, we will live in a world free of ALS. As we celebrate our 40th year of striving for a future without ALS, Ken’s visionary leadership honors the intentions of the Foundation’s founders and moves us closer to a cure.

Tickets for this event are now sold out, but there are countless other ways you can help us provide support for the ALS community this year.
