Doylestown native Jay Smith is living the reality of ALS.  For a truly inspiring glimpse into his life, to witness his relentless fight against ALS, amazing determination and positive outlook on his life – please visit his website at Every90Minutes or join his following of over 30,000 people on Facebook.

Through photography services by JE Portraits, we were pleased to be able to raise $1300 at this event to go towards Jay’s medical fund.  Overall the funds raised for the night exceeded $100,000, much needed relief for the mounting medical bills for the Smith family.  The average cost for ALS patients is $300,000 a year.  Unfortunately  it is estimated that federal funding for ALS is costing taxpayers $350-450,000 per year, and yet the amount committed to annual research is only $7.5 million per year.  Hoping for progress toward a cure in the lifetime of these warriors.
