Attention Madison Scouts Alumni and drum corps fans!

A Benefit for ALS Research

Representatives of the Madison Scouts Alumni are happy to announce the date and location of the 2005 ROCKIN FOR A CURE benefit to raise research funds and public awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Steve Weekes, former Madison Scouts member (1981-1983) and instructor, was stricken with ALS in 2000. He passed away on January 14, 2005.

Live music by Wall of Sound, food, beverages and a silent auction make this event a great evening!
