WeeseFest 4.0 (Episodes 1 & 2)
Battle of the bands to #END ALS
Our local Raleigh hero, Benton Weese, lost his amazing father, Larry Weese, to ALS in 2016 after a courageous battle. Larry was a strong family man, jokester, and served our country in the United States Army. Benton is hosting these live events to benefit the cutting-edge research at the ALS Therapy Development Institute. Funds raised will support 35+ scientists that focus every day, developing treatments for ALS. We know that ALS is not incurable; it's underfunded.
You're invited to two free live music events showcasing Raleigh's local talent. You'll also help raise funds to help find treatments for ALS!
Please bring your best donation at the door, or you can donate on this site, and receive your Official ALS TDI wristband! Be part of something big; make a difference in ALS research and enjoy a great show.
