About The ALS Association Northern New England Chapter
The Mission of The ALS Association is clear: To lead the fight to treat and cure ALS through global research and nationwide advocacy, while also empowering people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support. Sponsorship and support efforts, like the silent auction at the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival enable our organization to accomplish two imperative goals, one being to support people living with ALS and improve their everyday lives, the other being to raise funds for both research and support. We work with volunteers, friends and families of patients, as well as corporations and businesses to reach and hopefully, surpass our fundraising goals.

Stay tuned for info about the 2016 ALS Silent Auction!

About The 2015 ALS Silent Auction
The ALS Silent Auction takes place at the Lake Champlain Maritime Music Festival each year with one key goal in mind; to raise fundamental funds that will directly benefit individuals living with ALS as well as crucial research. Now in its 5th year at the Maritime Music festival, the ALS Silent Auction has raised thousands of dollars that directly impact The ALS Association Northern New England Chapter. Visitors are encouraged stop and talk with Deb Wehrlin, a key supporter of The ALS Association as well as the founder of The ALS silent Auction! Because of the hard work and dedication of everyone involved, and all those who take part in the auction, we are able to continue our important work.
