Bite Nite Moves to Virtual Format to Raise Money for ALS
Annual Foodie Event Brings Community Together to Support Association’s Arizona Chapter
Join the ALS Association Arizona Chapter on Saturday, November 28 to raise money and awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The eleventh annual Bite Nite will be as equally prestigious as years past, despite its new virtual venue. This year’s virtual gala will host multiple engaging activities, such as a silent auction, live music, and a demonstration from a locally renowned chef. Guests can either choose an in-restaurant experience at a local establishment or get a variety of bites delivered to their door on the day of the event. Money raised from the event goes toward education, support groups, access to care, advocacy, and finding a cure for the currently fatal disease.
“Bite Nite is one of the biggest and most enjoyable events each year and our goal is to uphold its enthusiasm, even in a virtual format,” said Taryn Norley, president, and CEO of the ALS Association Arizona Chapter. “Participants can support those living with ALS on a very local level. Their donations will help to fund our vital and free programs and services. Such support can flow from the comfort of their homes into the lives of those living within their very own neighborhoods.”
WHO: The ALS Association Arizona Chapter, along with many of the Valley’s most popular restaurants. The ALS Association is the only national nonprofit devoted to the fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease on all fronts.
WHAT: The eleventh annual, re-imagined Bite Nite. Guests will virtually experience live entertainment, a silent auction, and delicious delivered food.
