A Night to Fight: 4th Annual ALS Benefit

  • 115 Bourbon Street Bar

Our 4th Annual ALS Benefit will be held on Saturday, November 5 at 115 Bourbon Street Venue in Merrionette Park, IL.  Your generous support last year has helped Eric with his medical needs and treatments and allowed him to purchase equipment to assist in his daily care including a much needed handicap van.  It has helped offset insurance costs, will assist him with his future needs, and continues to help in our search for costly overseas treatments and medications. Your donations also helped fund much needed research through a donation to ALS Therapy Development Institute’s (ALS TDI) Precision Medicine Program.

Cocktail Attire Requested

Please join us this Saturday as we celebrate MDA’s 8th annual “A Toast to Life Benefit!”  Eric’s story will be prominently featured and our Von Schaumburg family has been chosen as the guests of honor.  Our family was selected to be filmed for a day by MDA, which will no doubt include some funny interviews from us all.   They will be showing our video at this event on Saturday.
Purchase tickets here.


MDA has always been a close organization to Eric as many of Eric’s college friends went to high school with the head of the Chicago MDA Chapter, Sarah Coleman.  Eric purchased tickets to this event a number of years back, and MDA's annual invitation was the first time Eric even saw the letters “ALS” together anywhere.   Many of Eric’s college friends will be in attendance for this event, as they are every year.  Please join us for a special night highlighting the Von Schaumburg family, as well as supporting an incredible ALS organization –  MDA.

You can help by putting your muscle behind the fight for treatments and cures for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis  (ALS) with MDA families and supporters. This year’s event will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, entertainment, live & silent auctions and more!  

 In the past seven years, A Toast to Life has raised nearly $350,000 for ALS research.

Purchase tickets here.
