“My mom and my aunt are living with Alzheimer's disease, and they recently lost another sister to the disease. We joined The Longest Day® to honor our matriarchs — and to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association® to help end this disease before it can affect future generations of our family.
My brother, Manuel, suggested we host a barbecue for The Longest Day because Mom always loved our Sunday cookouts when Dad grilled and all the children, grandchildren, aunts and uncles gathered in our backyard for a family meal.
I ask businesses to donate food and door prizes, Elois and Manuel work the grills, and we all sell tickets. Neighbors, friends and co-workers come from miles around to eat or take a plate home in support of the cause. Last year we raised $5,000 for The Longest Day!”
