Fourth Annual Black Tie Walk Affair Scheduled to Benefit the Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center
BOCA RATON, FL (September 9, 2009) The Caring Hearts Auxiliary of Florida Atlantic University’s Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center will present its fourth annual Keep Memories Alive Walk, a black tie walk affair, to benefit the Center. The walk will be held in the Town Center at Boca Raton on Sunday, November 1 at 9 a.m.
Teams and individuals of all ages raise funds and participate by wearing traditional walk attire while experiencing a unique black-tie themed event. This fun, family-oriented, air conditioned walk is planned as a result of the support of generous sponsors, including Presenting Sponsor Bobby Campbell.
The Memory and Wellness Center of the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing is located on FAU’s Boca Raton campus. The Center offers a wide range of services and programs to individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders and their families, and receives more than 12,000 visits each year.
“The Memory and Wellness Center is truly a gift to our community, providing a special place for families to bring loved ones who are experiencing memory loss,” said Karen Hoffheimer, Caring Hearts president. Hoffheimer is co-chairing the walk with fellow board members Deborah Lindstrom and Morgan Green. “The supportive programs for family members are so important, as they face many challenges in caring for a loved one with memory loss.”
In addition to the walk, Legal Sea Foods will be hosting the event’s second annual sponsor appreciation party on Monday, October 19 with WPTV News Channel 5 Anchor/Reporter Paige Kornblue as Honorary Chair.
Participants who raise a minimum of $25 receive a Keep Memories Alive black tie t-shirt while supplies last. For more information or to register for the walk, call 561-297-4066.
