Cary, NC – Waltonwood Cary Parkway has a memory center and works with residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. So to help combat these diseases, the senior living community is holding a fundraiser with raffles, blackjack, roulette and more.
Waltonwood Cary Parkway, located at 750 SE Cary Pkwy, is holding a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association and Dementia Alliance. But new for the senior living community, this will be a casino night fundraiser with games such as blackjack, Texas hold’em, roulette and more.
“We wanted to create a fun environment,” said Chelsea Gray, Waltonwood Cary Parkway’s marketing manager. “We knew we wanted to support the Alzheimer’s Association and Dementia Alliance with a fundraiser. Waltonwood has its memory center and we have patients who are diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s so it’s an important cause to us.”
The fundraiser is open to the public and there will also be shuttles to bring residents in from Carolina Preserves and Whispering Pines.
