May is Lou Gehrig’s disease awareness month and the Steven Schneider Allstate Agency on Prospect Avenue and Reeve Place will donate $5 for every insurance quote given now through June 19 (Lou Gehrig’s birthday) to The ALS Association Greater New York Chapter.

Last year, the agency was able to raise $3,150 to help fight the disease. Since the inception of the fundraiser, the agency has raised a total of $7,650.

“With the economy the way it is, organizations such as ALS need the help more than ever,” said Chris Scandaglia, licensed account manager. “So we are putting our money up as a way to inspire folks to do the same.”

The agency is also hosting a raffle, in which 100% of the proceeds go to the ALS Association. Raffle tickets are $10 each or $40 for all eight (50% off when buying tickets for all 8).

The following items will be raffled off: a New York Yankees Derek Jeter framed 8x10 autographed World Series photo, donated by Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation; two New York Yankees tickets for a to−be−­determined date in 2009, donated by New York Yankees; a New York Giants Madison Hedgecock framed 8x10 autographed World Series photo, donated by New York football Giants ; a New Jersey Devils David Clarkson autographed hockey puck−donated by New Jersey Devils; two New York Islanders tickets for a to be determined date in 2009−2010 season, donated by New York Islanders; a New York Knicks Quentin Richardson autographed NBA basketball, donated by New York Knicks; a New York Jets facsimile replica autographed 2008 football, donated by New York Jets; and a New York Rangers Markus Naslund autographed hockey stick, donated by New York Rangers.

Allstate agent, Steven Schneider will present a check for the amount collected to The ALS Association Greater New York Chapter, June 19. The agency also welcomes any additional customer contributions.
