Hot time in park party!

Sunny 95 Park • Amelita Mirolo Barn

For tickets, contact Sherri Burnside at, or any AWARE member.

Join AWARE for our Annual Summer Solstice Party to support the Alzheimer’s Association of Central Ohio.

It’s a fun-filled night with the one and only, Hottest Basket in the City competition, food, drink, silent auctions and the beautiful and very tempting gift card tree. Anyone can enter the “The Hottest Basket in The City” competition! If you love to garden, then this is the place to show off your talents and compete to win this year’s title. After the judging, the baskets and planters will be auctioned off to the highest bidders, so you can take one home and enjoy the party all summer long!

The funds raised by this event support the work of the Alzheimer’s Association Central Ohio chapter - to provide education, care and support to over 30,000 people in the Central Ohio area with dementia and their caregivers – and to provide funds that can help find research breakthroughs that may one day end this disease.

To enter this year’s “Hottest Basket in the City” please contact:
