Fundraiser for Diane Riportella, ALS fighter

Diane Riportella (my sister) was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) almost three years ago. She has fought bravely, but if you know anything about ALS, you know that it is relentless and merciless.

Needless to say, the cost of treatment is astronomical.

Our family has raised money for ALS research, but at this time the need is much more personal.

Friends of Diane are holding a fundraiser for her at the Flying Cloud Cafe in Atlantic City on Sept. 25. 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Tickets are $20 and there will be big prizes available, including:

1st place prize: a trip to Puerto Rico or Orlando plus $300.00 cash!
2nd place prize: $200.00 cash
3rd place prize: $100.00

This will be a party and a celebration.

To all my friends in the New York/New Jersey area, I urge you to attend. Laugh a little. Dance a little. Tell people I sent you.


For specific details, please call (609) 703-9433 or (609) 965-6187: ask for Amelia. Or you can contact organizers by e-mail at

ALS remains an invincible opponent, but Diane Riportella is not going down without a fight.

Please help her fight.

Thank you.
