2018 Honorees at Wings 18th Annual Gala

Wings is honoring several special people at its 18th Annual Gala on October 17, 2018.  The Spirit Award is being given to Claudia Fleming and Stephan Bogardus.  Claudia is the pastry chef at North Fork Table & Inn and the wife of the late Gerry Hayden, the co-owner and executive chef at North Fork Table.  Gerry died from ALS and both Claudia and Stephan have carried on his message of hope.  In this video, Gerry tells his story.

The Diamond Award, named in honor of co-founder of Wings Toni Diamond, will be presented to Dr. Matthew B. Harms from Columbia University.  Dr. Harms directs an international multi-site effort using whole genome and transcriptome sequencing to bring precision medicine to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. His laboratory efforts occur in both the Motor Neuron Center and the Institute for Genomic Medicine at Columbia.

The Beier Award, named in honor of the late Michael Beier who was a major force behind Wings Over Wall Street, will be presented to Anjan Aralihalli, Venture Partner at CTI Life Sciences.  AJ has worked tirelessly with the biotech and pharma industries to work on cures for ALS.
