On Wednesday, June 21, 2023, Brandywine Living communites answered the call to participate in the Alzheimer's Association biggest fundraising day of the year.
The Longest Day, observed on the summer solstice, is the Alzheimer’s Association's most active fundraising day of the year to spread awareness and raise funds for a cure. Participants from around the world fight the darkness of Alzheimer's through a fundraising activity of their choice.
Brandywine team members created unique fundraisers to engage their local community and residents.
Notable highlights include a Community Vendor Event, DIY Floral Bouquets, Miles for Memories, Sweets Sale, T-Shirt Sales, Ice Cream Truck, Casual for A Cause, and more.
Over $17,000 was raised for the Alzheimer’s Association by communities across six states. In addition to raising funds for a cure, The Longest Day provides an opportunity for people to connect about their experiences.
“I am always amazed at the generosity of our community and every year the numerous stories shared by those who stop to donate, their personal experiences with the disease and how it has impacted their lives,” commented Tobylynne Yurchick, Escapades Producer of Brandywine Living at Litchfield.
Brandywine Living has a long standing tradition of supporting the Alzheimer’s Association and those affected by memory loss.
“We are proud to participate in The Longest Day again this year. As a provider of memory care services, we have the privilege of caring for individuals living with Alzheimer's disease and their families. We connect with the initiative on raising awareness about Alzheimer's disease and celebrate each individual, their story and the patience and compassion of each and every caregiver who touches their lives every day.” commented Maria Nadelstumph, Senior Vice President Brandywine Center of Excellence.
