JAMESTOWN, N.C. -- It's ALS Awareness Month and Wine & Design is encouraging people to support ALS research.

Wine & Design in Jamestown is teaming up with 70 other Wine & Design studios across the country to partner with Team Chris Combs and Project ALS to collect $50,000 to go toward finding a cure for ALS.

The Jamestown location is holding a fundraising event Thursday, May 18 at 6:30 p.m. It will include music, food, drinks and a public painting class. 100-percent of proceeds will be donated directly to Project ALS. The event will be family-friendly and all ages are invited to join.

If you can't make it to the event, you can make a donation at any Wine & Design during the month of May.
