Present The Momma Mary Foundation
On October 23, 2012, Buddy Valastro and his mother Mary will be hosting their first annual Momma Mary Foundation event! Join the whole famiglia in promoting research of ALS at the first Annual gala of the Momma Mary Foundation.
Momma Mary Foundation’s 1st Annual Gala Dinner is taking place on Tuesday, October 23, 2012.
The event will be held at the Rockleigh Country Club in Rockleigh, New Jersey with an expected attendance of over 500 guests.
Mary Valastro (Momma) was recently diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Our mission is to help spread ALS awareness to the many who are uninformed and to stand by Momma.
This will give her the support she deserves during this very difficult time of her life. The Foundation is dedicated to creating awareness about the impact caused by this disease and raising enough support to ultimately find a cure. Their goal is to raise over $500,000. The proceeds will benefit both ALS WORLDWIDE and the University of Massachusetts ALS Champion Fund, where the Mary Valastro fund has been established.
Momma Mary has inspired all of the Valastro family to become the people we are today. She is the foundation of the family and they are so grateful to have a wonderful, strong, compassionate woman in their lives. She has shown the family how to live life to the
fullest and they want to take this moment to give back not only to her, but to everyone affected by this disease. At this time, they hope we can all come together as a community in support of this cause.
