This Saturday night, June 11, 6-10 p.m., you won’t want to miss the eighth annual Bite Nite at Westin Kierland Resort and Spa, 6902 E Greenway Pkwy., Scottsdale.  The philanthropic event is a great way to have fun but also raise money for the ALS Association Arizona Chapter. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord.  

The event will feature some of the greatest chefs in the valley, all who’ll be at Westin Kierland Resort & Spa for Bite Nite. You’ll be able to taste delicious food from local restaurants such as North Italia, The Capital Grille, and Toro Latin Restaurant & Rum Bar. After that, you’ll get to vote for your favorite restaurant that’ll take home the Best Bite of the Night Award.  In addition to fantastic food, there'll also be entertainment, live and silent auctions, and the purchase of mystery boxes.  

Since 1991, the Arizona Chapter of ALS has been providing free local programs to ALS patients and their families to help them manage the illness. Doctors don’t know what causes ALS and there is no cure or treatment.  Money raised from Bite Nite will go towards helping patients and their families plus community outreach and research.

You have until June 9 to purchase tickets for the event at Westin Kierland for the eighth annual Bite Nite at Westin Kierland Resort and Spa, 6902 E Greenway Pkwy., Scottsdale.  Tickets are $150 per person or $1,500 per table, or rather 10 tickets.  More information is at www.bitenite.org
