Announcing our online charity auction funding the ALS CURE Project.
All items have been donated to the ALS CURE Project, so every dollar of the winning bid goes directly to vital ALS research managed by our 100% volunteer ALS CURE Project organization.
Our second item is an autographed Stephen Piscotty of the Oakland Athletics, signed baseball bat.

You will be asked to set up an account that you will use for the auction. The software will alert you on bid changes that effect the item that you are bidding on and will notify the winner. You will receive a tax donation receipt from the ALS CURE Project, which is a US registered 501.(c)(3) organization.
Why is this approach so critical? With the Covid-19 crisis, the ALS CURE Project is unable to hold events such as golf tournaments, dinners and galas to raise funding. We have decided to offer items such as signed baseballs, jerseys and bats that would have been silent auction items at our postponed golf event up for online auction. We will conduct a series of auctions, one after another, so we are sure you will find an item of interest in one of our auctions.
Why is funding so important now? Over 20,000 people in the US have the ALS fatal disease. It is a horrible disease that renders your muscles useless while your brain functions normally. You become trapped in your body until you can no long breath or swallow. There is no cure for ALS. There are no tests for ALS. We do not know why ALS starts in person and what makes it continue. This is unacceptable. We need to conduct basic research to discover tests and understand the ALS disease mechanism. That is what Pharma companies need to develop a cure for ALS.
ALS CURE Project is a 501(c)(3) public charity registered in the United States, EIN# 84-3289802. Contributions will be tax-deductible. 2808 Longspur Way, Pleasanton, CA 94566 firstname.lastname@example.org
