 300+ Attend Project 2-4-20 Event  Back

Celebration Held in Memory of Keith Jones, who Lost his Battle with ALS

On a recent Saturday evening, more than 300 gathered for what was termed a night to remember: a celebration of Project 2-4-20. The occasion was the inaugural ALS Gala charity event, a celebration to continue the journey toward achieving a mission Keith Jones created. Project 2-4-20 was his goal - to live one day past his 50th birthday. He did not reach his goal as more than a year ago, at age 38, he lost his battle with ALS. However, a dedicated group of friends and relatives has united to continue Keith’s mission to raise funds for ALS in hopes of finding a cure and providing hope for patients diagnosed with this horrible disease.

“It was a wonderful evening of dinner, dancing, a skeet shoot off, and lots of fun at the Rod & Gun Club,” Alicia Young Jones, Keith’s widow says of the recent celebration. “Mickey Andrews, Florida State University’s former defensive coordinator and Keith’s defensive coach at FSU, attended as our guest speaker, and he truly inspired the crowd with his encouraging words about Keith’s life. Numerous former FSU players came to make the evening extra special. “I’m sure Keith is smiling down from heaven,” she wrote in a wrap-up of the night.

“Keith’s goal was to raise $2,042,020 for the fight against ALS, and the funds from the recent gala are going directly to the ALS clinic at Mayo Jacksonville. There is currently promising research at Mayo on chromosome 9,” Alicia notes.

“Project 2-4-20 provides other ALS patients with hope for the future, an improved quality of life and an opportunity for one more day.”

In conclusion, Alicia expressed a special thank you to the event sponsors. MPC is a proud sponsor of this event.
