Enjoy a light appetizer and a local craft brew at this event to support the national fight against Alzheimer’s.
“We've been floored by the level of support we've had from the Lansing area businesses,” said Mary Lynn Wieland, administrator of Robinwood Landing Alzheimer's Special Care Center, the organization producing the event.
The event’s silent auction includes six themed baskets filled with community goods from local businesses in Lansing.
“People forget that prior to the impact of this disease, these were flourishing individuals with life stories. These were wonderful human beings deserve as much respect and dignity as anyone else,” Wieland said.
People don’t realize the magnitude of the Alzheimer’s epidemic in the nation, she added.
“One in three people in their lifetime will be affected by Alzheimer’s disease.”
With a drink ticket and light appetizer included in admission, all proceeds will go toward the Lansing Walk to End Alzheimer’s, one of 600 communities in the national Walk to End Alzheimer’s network that raises funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
The Lansing Walk to End Alzheimer’s takes place September 23 at the Capitol. As it stands, the Lansing branch is at is at $79,0000 out of its $320,000 goal.
Hosting the event at the Lansing Brewing Co. was a way to support local businesses. “It is going to be a laid back evening with friends, family and professionals. Come as you are and enjoy the night to raise funds for a great cause,” Wieland said.
For those interested in helping outside of the event, volunteers are needed for the Lansing Walk to End Alzheimer’s and donations are accepted online. Visit this link for more information.
