Mark's Madness: Fighting against ALS
PORT ALLEN - Mark Manchester, the founder of the Manchester Project, stopped by 2une in Tuesday to talk about how Mark's Madness is helping in the battle against ALS and how you can help.
Manchester founded his organization after he was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) back in July 2011. Now he's hosting the first annual "Mark's Madness" to raise money for the Manchester Project, as well as the ALS Association of LA/MS and Team Gleason.
"Mark's Madness" is on Saturday, March 8 from 3-10 p.m. on the levee in downtown Port Allen. All you need is a $20.00 donation to enter. You will be entertained by performances from The Chee-Weez, JJ Callier, Floyd Brown, Big Pokey, Greg Martinez, Johnny Pat and Al Kilvo, Vinnie Whitehead and Don Rich.
You can order your tickets in advance here. For more information on Mark's Madness and Manchester's story, watch the video.
