Walk committee hosts fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society

NANAIMO – Beer and beverage event supports annual fundraising walk in January.

A burger and beverage can mean so much more than just a night out, thanks to the Nanaimo Investors Group Walk for Memories.

The walk’s volunteer organizing committee plays host to a Kick-Off Burger and Beverage fundraising event on Saturday (Nov. 29) at the Old City Station Pub. Net proceeds go to the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

“We’ll gather with friends and family to raise funds and awareness for people affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias,” said Lois Redwoood, co-chairwoman of the local walk.

More than 200 people are expected to attend the evening fundraiser, which also includes silent and live auctions. Donations for the auction are currently being sought.

A limited number of tickets for the fundraiser are available for $20 each, good for a burger, fries, and a beverage.

The 2015 Investors Group Walk for Memories takes place on Jan. 25.
