A few weeks ago Team GarBear hosted the FU ALS fundraising event at the Ogden Theater. It was an beautiful and overwhelming evening. The turnout far surpassed what we had hoped for, and the amount of love and generosity that poured into the venue that night blew us away. We can’t begin to express what this means to us.

With the money raised that evening Katie and I will be able to afford much of the needed adaptive medical equipment I will soon require. We have put all of the funds into a disability trust run by a third party. Every donation will go into the trust and can only be pulled out for my medical needs.

A very special thank you to Sam Warren for spearheading the entire operation. Sam gave so much of his time and energy to making sure everything went off without a hitch. We are beyond thankful for every company & person that donated(too many to list!), the bands that came out to play (Super Magick, Paper Bird & Luke The Knife), the core group of volunteers that worked effortlessly leading up to and the night of the event, AEG, Tito’s Vodka, Jiberish, Oskar BluesBamboo Booth, PatagoniaKree8, Quizno’s, Heaven HillSerious Texas BBQ, Never SummerIcelantic for going above and beyond and last but not least- every single person (over 1000!) that showed up that evening in support.

Hope to see you all at the next Team GarBear event. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!


Gary & Katie
