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!

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, 919-395-3717caycewagner@yahoo.com.
