Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2015
Augie’s Quest, an aggressive, cure-driven effort focused on finding treatments and cures for ALS, announced that the 10th anniversary Tradition of Hope gala will be held on October 10, 2015 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Tradition of Hope gala is a black-tie charity event which funds ALS research being done at the ALS Therapy Development Institute.
This year’s Tradition of Hope gala will feature entertainment by David Foster, Grammy award winning producer, song writer, arranger, performer and hitmaker. Foster is dedicating his time and talent for this 10 year anniversary event in honor of a close friend who is living with ALS.
In addition, Bert Selva, President and CEO of Shea Homes, will be honored with the 2015 Founders Award for his longstanding involvement and commitment to the mission of Augie’s Quest.
“10 years ago when Augie and I came up with the idea to host the first Tradition of Hope Gala, we had no idea that it would have such a huge impact on the ALS community. Since 2006, we have raised over $15 million for ALS research from this event alone. I’m proud to accept the Founders Award from Augie’s Quest and look forward to raising additional dollars to be used toward finding a treatment for ALS,” said Selva.
“When I was diagnosed with ALS in 2005, I was devastated,” said Augie Nieto, founder of Augie’s Quest, chairman of the ALS Therapy Development Institute, and person living with ALS. “The Tradition of Hope gala has always aimed to be a hopeful, upbeat, and exclusive experience for those living with ALS and those who want to help the ALS community by funding research towards a cure. I am thrilled of the success of this event year after year and am grateful for all of the support from our honorees, guests and sponsors over the past 10 years of this event.”
The Tradition of Hope is sponsored by Allied Lube, College Works, Fidelity National Title, First American, RD Olson Development, and Shea Homes.
