Rock to End Alzheimer's concert presented by Cartoons

1614 S Glenstone in Springfield
Saturday, April 26, 2014
Doors open 5:30 p.m. | Event starts 6:30 p.m.
Admission is $10 per person, and proceeds benefit the Springfield Walk to End Alzheimer’s.  



The event is organized by Donny Harrell, one of the evening’s featured musicians. After Harrell’s wife Char was diagnosed with younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease three years ago, they became actively involved with the Springfield office of the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Missouri Chapter.
 
In addition to their fundraising and advocacy efforts, Char attends Memory Buffet – an engagement activity which provides a supportive environment for people in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease or other dementia.
 
Members of the group formed a team several years ago to help raise money for the Springfield Walk to End Alzheimer’s. After serving as the team’s captain the past two years, Char agreed to sign on for a third term. Donny helped with fundraising efforts last year by organizing a CD-release party which raised over $1500. “We hope to double that amount this year,” said Donny. “So I hope a lot of folks come out and Rock to End Alzheimer’s on the 26th.”
 
The evening’s entertainment includes a silent auction and features these talented musicians: Jenny Vinyard | Barry Rowell | Donny Snow Harrell & Friends with special guest, Char Harrell | Truett & The Traitors | Heartpunch | Papa Green Shoes.
