Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP To Sponsor ALS Evening of Hope

Milwaukee, WI - The Milwaukee, Wisconsin based trial and litigation law firm, Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown LLP (GRGB) has announced that it will be sponsoring the 20th Evening of Hope, the ALS Association-Wisconsin Chapter's annual black tie gala to raise funds for ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) research. The event, which began in 1993, will be held on March 9, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency in Milwaukee. The Evening of Hope planning committee anticipates over 700 people will attend the event featuring silent and voice auctions, dinner, speakers and dancing.

The 20th year promises to be a truly special event. Special guest Steve Gleason will be appearing via Skype. Gleason, a New Orleans Saints Special Teams standout, is best known for blocking a punt that was recovered for a touchdown in the Saints' first home game post-Katrina. After his ALS diagnosis in 2010, he formed Team Gleason, dedicated to raising ALS awareness

The Evening of Hope was the brainchild of Jeff Kaufman, a former partner of GRGB, who succumbed to ALS in March 2010. Kaufman, who battled the disease for 21 years (80% of those with ALS die with five years of diagnosis), led the charge in raising funds for ALS research along with his wife Jan, working tirelessly to organize and plan the Evening of Hope event.

The lawyers and staff at GRGB have been a part of the Evening of Hope since the event's inception in 1993. "We knew we had to be a part of this event and help Jeff with his fight. The GRGB family fought alongside him during his long and courageous battle, and now we fight in his memory," notes Kathryn Keppel, partner at GRGB and President of the ALS Association-Wisconsin Chapter.

Attendance for this special event is limited; visit www.beatals.org for registration information.
