The Cottages Launched Fundraising Efforts for Alzheimer’s Research

The Cottages’ increase their efforts to raise funds for the Walk to End Alzheimer’’ Amarillo, Texas, August 15, 2019 – The Cottages, one of the industry leaders in memory care communities, has been dedicated not only to caring for those living with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other memory disorders, but also to the research to fight and end these diseases. Beginning in July, The Cottages launched their summer fundraising campaign to raise money for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Featuring many fun and family-friendly events, here are the highlights from the summer: Bahama Buck’s restaurant dine-in fundraiser July 31st was a huge success. The restaurant donated 20% of all proceeds during a 2-hour window from anyone who mentioned the Alzheimer’s Association. In August we saw The Cottages employees running a luncheon consisting of brisket sandwiches, chips, cookies, and bottled water. They delivered each meal personally and only charged $7.00 per sandwich. There were even more events this summer: Over two weeks, August 4th through August 17th, The Cottages had a unique fundraiser called “You’ve been Fluttered.” Set up sort of like a game of tag, each participant donated $15 and received 15 plastic butterflies. The game is to place all 15 in a neighbor’s, friend’s, or family member’s lawn. Whoever gets “fluttered” is essentially tagged and must donate $15 to get the 15 plastic butterflies to put in someone else’s yard, and so on. On August 15th, The Cottages hosted a single-day fundraiser with a dine-in at Schlotzsky’s restaurant. Anyone who dined between 4 pm and 9 pm that day can informed their server that they were raising money for...
