George Bowen has contributed his time to the city of Pleasanton in many ways. I am so very sorry to hear about the diagnosis of ALS. I think that George will continue to be active in the community and help fund research to find a cure for ALS. I will be thinking positive thoughts for George and his efforts.

George Bowen is a fantastic musician. We are looking forward to this special night of music, and coming together as a community to support those with ALS.

George is an amazing person, contributor to Pleasanton, and musician. I look forward to attending this special concert and supporting work George is involved with to help find a cure to ALS. My prayers are with George and his wonderful wife, Jane.
