The other 50% of all raffle sales revenue will benefit the Les Turner ALS Foundation. Founded in 1977, the Les Turner ALS Foundation is Chicago's leader in research, patient care, and education about ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease). The Foundation serves 90 percent of the ALS population in the Chicago area with an array of services including in-home consultations, support group meetings, medical equipment banks and respite and transportation grant programs. The Foundation is affiliated with Northwestern Medicine where it supports a large multidisciplinary clinical program and two world-class scientific research laboratories.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) causes motor neurons to gradually stop working and die. The result is loss of nearly all voluntary movement, and other muscle functions such as speaking, swallowing, and—eventually—breathing. ALS occurs throughout the world regardless of race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status. Approximately 35,000 people are living with ALS and it progresses at different rates in each individual. While treatment can help alleviate the symptoms, there is currently no cure for ALS.
