My Story

Celebrating the release of the sequel to the 1983 cult classic film “A Christmas Story,” actor Zack Ward — who reprised his role this year as neighborhood bully Scut Farkus for HBO Max’s “A Christmas Story Christmas” — will return to the Cleveland area this December for two, free public events to raise awareness and encourage donations to support the Alzheimer’s Association Cleveland Area Chapter.

Ward is drawing on the nostalgic power of the family-favorite flick — and the excitement surrounding the highly anticipated sequel — by teaming up for the second year with the Alzheimer’s Association as an advocate and Celebrity Champion, in honor of his father, Todd Ward, who is one of the 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease.

The two events, featuring Ward, are free and open to the public with donations encouraged in an effort to raise awareness and funds to support Alzheimer’s care, support and research efforts. Event information as follows:
