By WVUA 23 Web Writer Daniella Smith
BIRMINGHAM, ALA. — Dreamland Bar-B-Que is hosting their annual Bama’s Best for ALS fundraiser on Friday, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. The free event located at the restaurant’s Northport location (101 Bridge Ave.) benefits the Goode Foundation, a nonprofit organization supporting ALS research and providing support to those fighting the disease. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
“We are always happy to partner with The Goode Foundation and we’re thrilled to be a small part of the ALS fight,” said Dreamland CEO Betsy McAtee.
“Bama’s Best for ALS” will feature Alabama sports legends signing autographs and mingling with fans throughout the night. Birmingham-based WJOX Sports Radio will host the Roundtable show in the Northport location from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The show features Lance Taylor, Ryan Brown and Jim Dunaway. Tuscaloosa’s own Ryan Fowler will host 102.9’s The Game from 2 to 8 p.m. The event will also include raffles, a silent auction and live music.
In an ongoing support for ALS, Dreamland announced the “Oh So Goode” package which contains world famous Dreamland ribs, chicken, sauce, sides and more. The “Oh So Goode” package can be purchased at www.dreamlandbbq.com for $160. A portion of the proceeds from all sales will benefit the Goode Foundation.
Kerry Goode played for Alabama from 1983-87 and rushed for 1,572 yards and seven touchdowns. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted him in the seventh round during the 1988 draft. Goode played one year in Tampa Bay and a season with the Miami Dolphins before retiring. Between 1993 and 1998, Goode worked six years in the NFL as a strength and conditioning coach with the New York Giants and St. Louis Rams. In 2015 Goode established the Goode Foundation to support research and those affected by the disease.
