The MAC Angels Foundation welcomed its first-ever Executive Director, Quentin Ball, this week. MAC Angels is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support individuals and their families who have been diagnosed with ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Quentin brings over 20 years of experience in the for- and non-profit sectors to her role at MAC Angels. Most recently, Quentin was the Executive Director at The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education.
Quentin will prioritize her time on strategic planning, fundraising, raising awareness about the disease, and working with the talented services team. Kelly Corwen, Vice President of the Board of Directors, states “Quentin brings a unique mix of organizational leadership and management to our organization, and we are excited to have her lead us forward.”
One of Quentin’s first activities will be participating in the 2018 Westchester Triathlon, an annual fundraiser benefiting several non-profits including MAC Angels. Quentin is an avid triathlete and intends to use this event to raise additional revenue and awareness for the organization.
MAC Angels Foundation supports families with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). There are a number of organizations focused on raising the dollars needed to fund cutting-edge research, and to finding treatments and a cure for ALS. The goal of the MAC Angels Foundation is to compliment these efforts, by filling the “survivorship” gap for ALS families in need. Their mission is to enhance the quality of life for patients, family members and caregivers impacted daily by ALS, by providing the compassion, education and unique resources needed to manage the devastating effects of this disease.
