All ALS of Nevada events help fund services for ALS patients, their families and caregivers. The STEVE RIGAZIO MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT is held in Las Vegas each May. The golf tournament is named for former Nevada Power (now NV Energy) President Steve Rigazio, who died at 47 years of age on Dec. 27, 2001 from complications of ALS. This year the golf tournament is being held at Cascata Golf Club. It is open to the public.
