Everyone is invited to come on down to the Ashen Rose where the “Remember For Me” the Alzheimer’s Awareness organization of Hunt County will be having a “not so typical” fundraiser this evening from 5 pm. until 8 pm. Enjoy some great food, cocktails, wine and craft beers and have them served to you by local celebrities Friendlee, Julie Horn and Rick Kohn with the proceeds being donated to the organization.
When asked why the “Remember for Me” organization was established Julie Horn said “The Remember For Me organization was created shortly after my dad passed away after suffering with Alzheimer’s for 9 years. I quickly realized, along with Friendlee, that the Alzheimer’s Caregivers and families need help”.
She went on to add “So many have said to me ‘We don’t know where to go for help or what to expect next.’ Remember For Me wants everyone to know we are that source for you. Alzheimer’s is an incurable disease that is like hell on earth for those suffering and those caring for their loved one”.
HCN asked Laura Rose Jones and Ashley Gardner (owners of the Ashen Rose) why they take such a proactive stance on supporting organizations with their business and they said “We believe in giving back to our community. We have done donation nights before and will continue to do them to help raise money for such important causes”.
