ALS benefit

MONMOUTH – A fund-raiser for Lou Gehrig’s Disease is being sponsored by the Theater at Monmouth. The theater will donate half of the proceeds from the July 16 show, “As You Like It,” a Shakespeare romantic comedy, to ALS Hope, a nonprofit organization that funds ALS research.

Tickets are $25 each and can be ordered by calling the Monmouth box office at 933-9999 by June 15.

The fund-raiser has been initiated by a group of women from Portland who formed in early 2004 after their 34-year-old friend had been diagnosed with ALS. ALS is a fatal neurological disease that kills motor neurons and eventually leaves its victims paralyzed. There is no treatment or cure.
