Middle Tennessee puts on denim and diamonds for Alzheimer’s Tennessee

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The Middle Tennessee Court Clerks Association invites you to the inaugural Middle Tennessee Purple Gala benefitting not-for-profit Alzheimer’s Tennessee on Saturday, March 25 near Franklin. Denim and Diamonds is the theme for the evening and includes dinner and a live band.

“So many of us have been touched by Alzheimer’s and dementia, and we want to have a special night to honor and remember our loved ones while raising much-needed funds to support families and research,” Rebecca N. Bartlett, Volunteer Event Chairperson and Lincoln County Court Clerk, shared. “We want to help Alzheimer’s Tennessee meet the growing need for education, services and brain health awareness in our Middle Tennessee communities.”

Alzheimer’s Tennessee, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization, has been serving individuals and their families since 1983. Alzheimer’s Tennessee’s Middle Tennessee Office will be located at 4235 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville, TN 37215 with mailing address P.O. Box 150036, Nashville, TN 37215. While once affiliated with a national organization, all funds raised by Alzheimer’s Tennessee are now re-invested in advocacy, research and support services that benefit Tennesseans.

At least 84 cents of every dollar donated directly funds the Alzheimer’s Tennessee Mission: To serve those facing Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, to promote brain health through education, and to champion global research, prevention and treatment efforts.

“The inaugural Alzheimer’s Tennessee Purple Gala promises to be an evening of fun, fellowship and memorable music,” says Janice Wade-Whithead, Executive Director of Alzheimer’s Tennessee. “We know that music is a good way to reach and preserve memories. The funds and awareness raised at this Gala and this memorable performance will help Alzheimer’s Tennessee realize our vision to Make Alzheimer’s a Memory.”

The evening begins at 7pm and the $100 Gala Tickets includes dinner, a signature drink and live entertainment provided by the Doug Bartholomew Band. The inaugural Middle Tennessee Alzheimer’s Tennessee Purple Gala is presented with the support of sponsors Tybera, Pioneer/MSB and more.

Alzheimer’s disease is currently ranked as the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, but recent estimates indicate that the disorder may rank third, just behind heart disease and cancer. And for every individual living with the disease, an average of four family members, friends and neighbors serve as caregivers who need support and guidance. More than 110,000 Tennesseans are living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias right now. For more information, please visit www.alzTennessee.org or call toll-free statewide 888.326.9888.
