CLEVELAND, Ohio — It’s a terrible genetic disorder with no cure and very little treatment: Huntington’s Disease.

Sports reporter Allie LaForce and her fiance, Los Angeles Angels’ Joe Smith, are on a mission to find a cure and treatment. And the Cleveland Clinic has a goal of $2 million to fund a Huntington’s Disease research project.

Tickets were sold for a 2015 Kia Optima donated by Halleen Kia. They were $50 each, and only 4,000 tickets were up for sale. All proceeds will go to the research project.

The drawing for the car will be held Monday on Fox 8 News in the Morning.
