Joann Tram and her friends hosted a birthday party in recognition of National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month with food, drinks, entertainment and fashion. The cost at the door was $20 and a portion of the proceeds were donated to the Alzheimer’s Association of Colorado.
Host A Silent Auction
For three years Jan Murdoch and her husband, Dr. Rick Murdoch, have held a silent auction in their home to raise money for their Walk to End Alzheimer's team. With the donation of more than 100 auction items including gift baskets, restaurant gift cards and sports tickets, the event which featured live entertainment, an Italian buffet and cocktails, has raised as much as $15,000!
