The Dance Floor at The Atlantic Club's Country Concert for ALS
MANASQUAN, N.J. - The Country Concert for ALS at The Atlantic Club in Manasquan on Friday, April 27th proved to be a great success. The event brought together both members and the community to raise awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. A total amount of $7,500 was raised for the ALS Therapy Development Institute, in an effort to get AT-1501, the most promising drug to date in the treatment of ALS, into human trials this year.
AT-1501 could be a major breakthrough, possibly halting the progression of ALS in persons suffering from this disease. In addition, AT-1501 may also have potential benefits for those suffering from Type 1 (Juvenile) Diabetes, Alzheimer's, and even in some skin transplant cases. "ALS isn't an incurable disease, it's an underfunded one, and we are doing everything we can, with the help of our Members, Staff, and Community, to make a real difference in the lives of those living with ALS," said Pat Laus, Owner of The Atlantic Club.
The event, which hosted almost 400 attendees, featured an opening performance by Jade Glab, Belmar native crowned Miss Monmouth County, and headlining performance by popular country band After The Reign. Concert-goers enjoyed a special guest appearance by Chris VanZant and the Thunder 106 crew, a Beer Garden, Slider & Taco Bar and Cornhole.
This event kicked off The Atlantic Club's Team recruitment for The Rock n' Roll Marathon Series in Nashville, where team members will participate in their choice of a 10K or 1/2 Marathon race while fundraising for ALS TDI (ALS Therapy Development Institute). This will be the third Rock n' Roll Marathon Series The Atlantic Club Team has participated in, making appearances in Las Vegas in 2017 and Brooklyn in 2016. In addition to the $7,500 raised at the Country Concert, The Atlantic Club Team recruited ten team members for the Nashville Rock n' Roll race!
