EVENTS


Forget Me Not Days
Forget Me Not Days was started by Bankers Life and Casualty Company in 2003 as the company's annual fundraiser to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. Banker's agents and employees volunteer nationwide to collect donations and have contributed more than $2 million through collections and corporate donations.

This year, Forget Me Not Days are scheduled for June 5-6 at McCain Mall, 3929 McCain Blvd, North Little Rock, AR 72115, from 9:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. to coincide with the beginning of Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month. This campaign is a traditional "tag days" event where volunteers collect donations in exchange for a packet of Forget-Me-Not flower seeds to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's. One hundred percent of the donations collected benefit the Alzheimer's Association.

For more information, please contact Jane Gunter at 501.265.0027 or jgunter@alz.org or click here.
