Alzheimer’s Network Fundraiser in Salem


Great food, great support, great cause!

The Springs at Sunnyview hosted a Festa Italiana fundraiser with all proceeds going directly to the Alzheimer’s Network!   With more than 40 local businesses contributing to this event, we raised over $1,700!

The event started out with a great Italian buffet, tours of the community, and vendors offering resources such as tips on downsizing, moving made easy, and holistic approaches to good health.  Attendees had the opportunity to buy raffle tickets for Italian themed baskets, a Kindle Fire, a ladies ring valued at $725 and more. Winners were called every half hour and renewed hope was in the air!

The evening concluded with Dr. Robert Winningham presenting on Brain Fitness.  Dr. Winningham has 20 years of experience researching applied memory issues and for the past 16 years has conducted research on older adults and ways to enhance their mental functioning and quality of life.  His presentation sparked interest in the folks at The Springs at Sunnyview, and some of his suggestions will be added to the community life enrichment program!
