Annie is very excited that she met her goal of $250 from tips made this month to donate to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by one of her shows and contributed to the cause. Annie’s dad passed away earlier this month, and he suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, so she committed herself to raising as much as she could through her tip jar this month.
Annie is also participating in the 2010 Memory Walk. Memory Walk is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research — and it calls on people of all ages to take action in the fight. You can find out more about the Memory Walk at Alz.org. The Walk begins the morning of Oct. 2nd at Mount Mary College (Bergstrom Hall). Annie is a member of the “Long and Winding Road” team, and they are currently accepting new members from the public! Registration is at 9:30am and the walk begins at 11. It’s a 2-3 mile walk around the campus. Make a $50 donation and you’ll get a Memory Walk T-shirt! Please come out & support or join Annie!
