Team Chris Combs

to Strike Out ALS

Please join us in our journey to raise awareness, connect with our ALS community, participate & help fund research to find a cure for ALS.



We are so thankful for a wonderful 2nd Annual Hope Gala to Defeat ALS at the Umstead this past September. With the gracious support of so many sponsors and our amazing community, we raised over a million dollars and surpassed our 2016 numbers! We enjoyed a fabulous night with cocktails, food, a silent and live auction, and  entertainment by DJ Joe Bunn. Our live auction items went for record amounts and many of the winning bidders have enjoyed their trips already with many more to come this upcoming spring!


We are already starting to work on the 3rd Annual Gala so please mark your calendars for September 28th, 2018! We will return to the Umstead again this year and promise another magical night filled with love, friendship, and HOPE. Every single dollar we raise leads us closer to the cure. Project ALS has many exciting breakthroughs on the horizon and continues to work around the clock in the labs to help discover a treatment and ultimately reverse the effects of this devastating disease. Please consider sponsoring the gala this year and help us to raise even more then last year! If you are interested in being a sponsor, please email We are looking forward to another memorable night celebrating the Combs family and working together to truly make a difference. Many more updates to come in the coming weeks, but please make your calendar and spread the word!

Cayce Wagner has generously offered 10% of the proceeds from any digital downloads of her images captured at the gala, to Project ALS!  In addition, she will donate $50 toward ALS for every full session scheduled with her from now until February 2018, if you mention you were a guest at the Hope Gala.  If you have any questions about ordering from the site, or if you want to schedule a session, her contact information is Cayce Wagner, 919-395-3717,
