The annual luncheon was held at Michael’s On East on Monday, Feb. 6.
Everyone in the ballroom at Michael’s On East was there for a reason Feb. 6. Not everyone had a loved one living with Alzheimer's disease, but it became clear after talking to Paul Charlesworth — a board member of the Alzheimer's Association Florida Gulf Coast and loved one of multiple people living with the disease — that the gathering had a much larger purpose.
“We’re going to keep fighting,” Charlesworth said, noting that he will continue to help spread awareness and do whatever he can to help raise funds to find a cure for the disease that affects more than 5 million Americans.
Luncheon guests dined on a chicken entree and fruit cocktail dessert before learning more about the work of the Alzheimer's Association and the disease that it works to foster awareness for.
