Benefit Screenings of A Sacred Journey for ALS Month

Fri, May 17 - 22:30

247 S Main St

Los Angeles, Los Angeles County



East LA Rising presents a Higher Ground Entertainment Production of A Sacred Journey, a powerful documentary about the transformative power of caring.
A Higher Ground Entertainment has partnered with East LA Rising to support this cause. “East LA Rising has been there for Juan and our entire family throughout his journey, and now this is our way of giving back,” said Quintero, “Every ticket purchased will not only contribute to increasing ALS awareness but also fifty percent of the proceeds will go to East L.A. Rising (formerly ELA Boys & Girls Club).” This will help East LA Rising to continue to serve over 1500 youth and their families.

May is ALS Awareness Month and the ALS community is seeking the help of individuals willing to participate, advocate and donate to advance the fight toward a world free of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.” To all of our new and long-time followers and supporters, as well as those of you who might have seen the shorter version, we couldn't have gotten here without you; a big Thank You!  This is the finished, 73-minute version that covers it all: from tragedy and struggle, to discovery and possibility! Please join us at one of our three Los Angeles benefit screenings.

The other fifty percent will help us fulfill our intentions as we screen the film across the country in the following way:
1. Continue raising ALS and DBA awareness through touring schools, conventions, conferences, medical institutions, and film festivals.
2. Strengthen the ALS and MS registry with the overall goal of helping those unaccounted for to get assistance.  
3. Address a need for adequate nursing, with the intention of changing policy. There are presently no agencies that will fulfill the needs that Juan requires.
4. Celebrate the 66 million caregivers that exist in this country, and to provide tools and resources they can use to live healthier lives.
