Ted Pokorny, the driving force to raise funds locally for ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), passed away Feb. 15. After his diagnosis in spring 2010, Ted and his wife Jo began their full commitment to make a difference for future ALS patients by raising more than $50,000 through Art for the Cause 2011, Art-a-PaloozzzA 2012, Rehoboth Walk to Defeat ALS and dinner events.
The focus of Team Ted 2013 is to provide funds for specific needs of individuals stricken with ALS in the Delmarva region.
Each month, a local restaurant has hosted and contributed a percentage of dinner proceeds to Team Ted. All are invited to join Team Ted members for dinner Wednesday, March 6, at Finbar, 316 Rehoboth Ave. in Rehoboth Beach.
Ted would wholeheartedly encourage all to gather with friends, good food and plenty of laughter. Reservations are suggested. Call 302- 227-1873.
