More than 800 guests attended Bite Nite on June 2 at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa. The annual fundraiser for the ALS Association Arizona raised a record $278,000. The money will go toward patient and family services, community outreach, medical equipment and support for the newly established Living with ALS program to help patients live their lives to the fullest. Each year, the Arizona chapter serves more than 400 patients.

Guests enjoyed signature dishes from 16 Valley restaurants such as Fogo de Chao, Toro and Meridiem. As part of the event, guests voted for their favorite dish via text. This year, the title of “Best Bite” went to Ling & Louie’s Asian Bar and Grill.

The ALS Association’s goal is to raise funds for those living with ALS as well as for the families supporting them. The estimated yearly cost for someone living with ALS is $200,000.
