Alpine's Quest for the Cure
An Alpine memory care specialist continues her fundraising efforts to fight Alzheimer's Disease.
Alpine’s very own memory care setting, Alpine View Lodge, will be hosting its annual Quest for the Cure fundraising event on Friday, October 4, 2019. The fundraiser benefits Alzheimer’s San Diego, the only organization of its kind wherein every dollar raised in San Diego, stays in San Diego.
Each year Alpine’s local team, Quest for the Cure, is a top fundraiser at Walk4ALZ, a region-wide walk for Alzheimer’s research and local families affected by the disease. Led by Alpine View Lodge’s Linda Cioffi, Quest for the Cure has the honor of being the region’s top fundraiser for Alzheimer’s San Diego. Cioffi, who also has the distinction of being the 2019 Honorary Mayor of Alpine, is inviting the entire community to support the cause and attend the Octoberfest-themed event.
This year Quest for a Cure aims to raise over $75,000. “We each have a reason for giving. It could be a special someone we watched lose their memories and their cognitive abilities to this horrible disease. We each worry that someday it will be our own brain health at risk, our cherished memories fading away,” says Cioffi. “But, it doesn't have to be that way. As a cancer survivor I am alive today because of the research and cures that may have seemed impossible decades ago, but now allow me to high five fellow cancer survivors. We can do the same with Alzheimer's disease.”
Cioffi encourages everyone to donate what they can, "Every dollar counts!" But to thank those who raise one thousand dollars or more, donors will become a member of the exclusive MONARCH CLUB with special benefits including a drawing for a Hawaiian vacation for two, including airfare.
Hosted by the Alpine Community Center, Quest for the Cure 2019 is sure to be an amazing event. Shawn Styles, on-air talent from Channel 8 CBS, will serve as master of ceremonies. This year will feature a festive beer garden, great food by Descanso Junction, opportunity drawing, and an amazing live and silent auction. You don’t want to miss out on the fun!
