Augie and Lynne Nieto, co-chairpersons of MDA’s ALS Division, are hosting the Black & Blue Bash for Augie’s Quest to raise funds for MDA’s ALS research program on March 30 at the San Francisco Marriott.

Two-time Olympic gold medallist swimmer Summer Sanders will serve as the event’s emcee.

 Best-selling author Mitch Albom (Tuesdays with Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven and For One More Day) is the keynote speaker, and Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting will perform.

The inaugural Bash in 2006 raised $2.8 million for MDA’s ALS research program — a record amount for any event aimed at fighting ALS.
