CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Early onset Alzheimer’s disease, the condition that struck Tennessee Lady Vols’ coach Pat Summitt, has no cure.
But you can support research leading to a cure and help a Charlotte non-profit that provides daytime care for people with Alzheimer’s and other conditions – during The Ivey’s Second Annual After-Hours Auction, Thursday, October 13 from 6 to 8 pm. It will be at The Ivey adult day care center in SouthPark, 6030 Park South Drive in Charlotte. Come as you are, in business or casual attire.
This silent auction will offer beautiful artwork, handmade quilts, jewelry, hand-blown glass, gift certificates and more. Some of the artwork has been created by members of The Ivey and of LifeSpan, a program for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Free chair messages will be available during the event from Day Break Massage, and light refreshments will be served.
Proceeds will benefit The Ivey and the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
The Ivey is accepting donations for the auction, including award miles, trips, stays at vacation homes, home accessories, sports memorabilia, and other goods and services. To donate, contact Kelly Gibson at 704/909-2070 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
