Dave Griggs Roast Ticket Page

"I've personally witnessed how the Alzheimer’s Association has helped Nancy and her mother as her mother faces the early stages of dementia. It seems all of our friends have, or have had, a relative dealing with Alzheimer’s disease. This great organization needs our support to assist those suffering from Alzheimer's and assist their families while working toward prevention or a cure." - Dave Griggs

In a new twist, two emcees - Bob Gerding and Joe Moseley - will attempt to keep these Roasters on task: Tom Bradley, Radio Talk Host/ Ad Agent / Creative Consultant; Bill Watkins, Chief Operating Officer-Riback Supply / former Columbia City Manager; and Michele Batye, Financial Officer-Dave Griggs’ Flooring America.

The doors open at 5:30 pm, with dinner at 6:30 pm, followed by a special video presentation, live auction and Roast. Tickets are $100 each (open seating), or reserved tables are available for $1,000 (includes 8 tickets). We also offer Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsor packages. For more information, call Megan Schwedtmann, 573.443.8665.
