ALS Month: Support Wings Over Wall Street

Date: May 25, 2021

AFA Members, Toni Diamond and Warren Schiffer, became founders of the extraordinary benefit, "Wings Over Wall Street" when Toni was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

In 2004, we lost Toni, our flying partner, but her care-giver husband, Warren, continues to work in her memory.

They turned their greatest challenge into inspiring work to fight ALS through research funded by the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).  Read the MDA Impact Sheet.

"Wings" brings together the spirit of our work in the skies, the financial contributions of Wall Street and an event that has celebrity appeal to become a multi-million-dollar benefit. While Wings has accomplished a great deal by raising millions, none of this would have been possible without the support of Union Members and the generosity of the business community.

Currently, there is an ALS Awareness Month Silent Auction that closes on June 2nd at 9pm EST.   For more information, please visit the silent auction website.
