Dance benefit raises money for Alzheimer’s Association
On Sept. 11, the 4th annual Dance to Benefit Alzheimer’s raised more than $5,500 for the CT Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. Sponsored by Maefair and Northbridge Health Care Centers, Trumbull and Bridgeport, and Benchmark at Split Rock, Shelton, the dance was held at Split Rock’s beautiful retirement community. More than 150 guests attended the event, which featured music, appetizers, beverages, and raffle gifts donated by many area restaurants, hotels, shops and health care providers. A special drawing, provided by Tailwind Air, two round-trip tickets from Stratford to New York City on their new seaplane service, was available for attendees who pre-purchased tickets to the event.
The Signature Band donated their musical talent again this year and Bakes N’Cakes Café of Southbury donated fabulous fresh baked items for dessert! Lexi Kennedy, Special Events Director of the Alzheimer’s Association of CT, spoke briefly about Alzheimer’s and the upcoming “Walk to End Alzheimer’s”.
“Because everything was donated”, says Denise Loeb, Community Liaison of Maefair and Northbridge Health Care Centers, “every dollar that we collected will go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association to fund a cure for this horrible disease. The money raised will be donated towards the Alzheimer’s Walk, taking place on October 4th at Calf Pasture Beach, Norwalk.”
