Posted By on June 20, 2018

The ALS Association Arizona Chapter raised a record-breaking $278,000 at its 9th Annual Bite Nite, which took place on June 1 at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa.

Over 800 attendees helped to raise funds that will allow the organization to continue to serve patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Each year, the organization serves more than 400 patients and their families.

“The ALS Association is the only national nonprofit solely devoted to raising awareness and funds for ALS,” said Taryn Norley, executive director of the ALS Association Arizona Chapter. “It was so exciting to see how many people attended the event this year and helped us raise funds to provide necessary services for those individuals living with ALS.”

At the event, guests enjoyed signature dishes from 16 restaurants including Fogo de Chao, Toro, Meridiem and “Best Bite” winner Ling & Louie’s Asian Bar and Grill.
