Los Altan chairing S.F. fundraiser in fight against ALS

Robert Hammer of Hammer Auto in Los Altos is chairing a big fundraising event tomorrow (Thursday) night in San Francisco, all for a good cause: fighting ALS.

The A.L.S. Association Golden West Chapter is presenting "Champions for Care and a Cure," beginning 6 p.m. at the Fairmont Hotel (950 Mason St.), featuring wine tasting, entertainment, dinner and silent and live auctions. 

The evening's entertainment features Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi fame. Also appearing is his girlfriend, Orianthi, perhaps best known as Michael Jackson's touring guitarist in the film, "This Is It."

Proceeds go to fight ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) a progressive neurodegenerative disease for which there currently is no cure.
