2014 Forget Me Not Days Kick Off
April 6, Indiana Pacers vs. Atlanta Hawks
The first 6,000 fans in attendance for the April 6 Indiana Pacers vs. Atlanta Hawks game will receive a packet of Forget-Me-Not flower seeds to take home and plant in honor of families across Indiana who are facing Alzheimer’s.
May 16 & 17, 2014
Bankers Life Forget Me Not Days takes place over a two-day period in the spring, typically the Friday and Saturday following Mother’s Day. This year, event dates are May 16 & 17. During this event, Bankers employees, agents, family and friends help raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. 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. 100% of the money raised goes directly to the organization.
Bankers Life and the Alzheimer’s Association extend an invitation to anyone and everyone who wants to participate in Forget Me Not Days! Grocery Stores, shopping malls, community events and places of worship are just a few of the places you can collect donations in your local community.
