Stepping up for Alzheimer’s

Submitted by Monticello Park

Bake Sale, Dog Show and Memories Matter Fashion Show & Tea to Benefit The Alzheimer’s Association.

What does fresh baked cookies, happy wagging tails and fashion all have in common? If you are a resident at Monticello Park Senior Living, it is they are all events to benefit the Southwest Washington Alzheimer’s Association.

“Our community has been holding a series of activities and events to raise awareness and donations leading up to the Walk To End Alzheimer’s at the lake on September 22nd,” said Nikkol Nagle, Life Enrichment Director at Monticello Park. “So far we’ve raised $865 where much was generated from our rummage sale. We’re hoping with this month’s events we can reach over $1000.”

Upcoming fundraisers include a Bake Sale, Dog Show and a Memories Matter Fashion Show which all involve the residents participation. Monticello Park residents are also participating in the walk at Lake Sacajawea. Those who are not able to walk the distance at the lake, will instead walk around the perimeter of the Monticello Park building at 3:00 pm holding the “Alzheimer Promise Flower” that either represents someone with Alzheimer’s, someone who has lost a loved one to the disease, someone currently caring for someone with Alzheimer’s, or someone who supports the cause and vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.
