The Downtown Music Fest makes a huge donation to the ALS Foundation.
ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord.
The group presented $40,000 to the foundation from proceeds raised at the festival last month.
"It's amazing for a first time event to raise this kind of money. You never know it could be someone in your family or it can be you,” said Terry Collins, who suffers from the disease.
As many as 20,000 Americans have ALS.
The organization has already started planning for next year's Festival.
