Steve Gleason's fight for his life against the ravages of ALS is never far from our minds, and those who live in the greater Seattle area have a chance to help raise money to help defray the costs of his care by participating in the "Game On For Gleason" fundraiser on May 12 at Safeco Field.
From the event press release:
Drinks, heavy appetizers, a silent & live auction and a special video presentation will highlight the event. Event guests will also get a special tour behind the scenes of the home of Seattle Mariners baseball. Tickets for the event are $80 online ($95 at the door), and all proceeds go to Steve, wife Michel and baby Rivers through the Gleason Family Trust.
lt doesn't appear Gleason will be in attendance, but his brother, Kyle, will be there to share about Steve's courageous fight.
To make a donation (nothing is too big or small) or to learn more about the event, you can contact contact Kim Gonzalez at 425-283-8584 and kegonzo(at)gmail(dot)com.
And if you can't do any of those things, keep praying for Steve, Michel and Rivers.
No white flags. Go Cougs.
