We hold several special events each year to support the Alzheimer's Association's programs and services. You are invited to join us!

Contact Rebecca Peterson, Special Events Manager at 414.479.8800 or for more information.    

Go Purple!
June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month - an opportunity to hold a conversation about the brain, and share the fact that Alzheimer's disease and other dementias are a major public health problem. During the month of June, the Alzheimer's Association® asks people around the world to wear Purple and use their brains to fight Alzheimer's disease.  Materials in our Go Purple toolkit will assist you in making your Go Purple efforts at home or work ROCK.
