ALS Month: Support Wings Over Wall Street

Date: May 9, 2023

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

Together, they turned their greatest challenge into inspiring work to fight ALS through research funded by the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). In 2004, we lost our flying partner, Toni, but her caregiver husband, Warren, continues this work in her memory.

"Wings" brings together the spirit of our work in the skies, the financial contributions of Wall Street, and events throughout the month of May. 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.
