Fundraiser Details

Frank Hennessy, a life-long South-Sider, was recently diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS/ Lou Gehrig’s disease).  You may know Frank from his decades of service to the southern suburbs.  From coaching girls’ softball, Little League, and St Benedict’s basketball, volunteering for the YMCA Indian Guides, Blue Island Park District and Eagles, Frank has been a fixture in his community. 

ALS is a degenerative disease.  For the past year prior to his diagnosis, Frank had been unemployed and uninsured.  Medical bills, prescription drugs and assistive equipment necessary for individuals with ALS are very expensive.

If you are in the Chicagoland area on December 15, 2013, please stop by the Double Play Saloon in Blue Island, IL from 3:00-7:00pm for the big fundraiser. The Double Play is located at 13011 Western Ave. on Chicago's south side.  If you cannot make it, feel free to help via this site. Frank appreciates all the support and all the love.

Happy December! If you are unable to attend my Dad's benefit in two weeks' time (12/15/13), there is another way to help! You can always write a check made out to "Friends of Frank" or visit wwww.youcaring/friendsoffrank and make a donation via PayPal. All of your generous help will be invaluable in helping my dad pay for his medical care as he battles ALS. Thanks to all.
