Alzheimer’s Family Services fundraiser a big success

By Lanier Laney

Executive Director Arlene Hull said the Alzheimer’s Family Services of Greater Beaufort had a sellout crowd of more than 240 people at last weekend’s dinner theater fundraiser at The Shed in Port Royal. The money will go directly to help caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s disease in our community.

Arlene said, “Thank you, thank you to all of the hard-working volunteers and staff, and the generous sponsors, and the wonderful people who supported us by attending, and the night would have been nothing without our great entertainers, Ron Daise, Harry Chakides, Bernie Schein and Steven Keyserling — the “Unreliables” whose incredible talents made this event such a success. You are all my heroes!”

She added, “Please also thank all of the donors of our many silent auction items and the generous people who bid on them.”

The wonderful dinner stations were provided by Breakwater, Emily’s, chefs from  Lady’s Island Country Club,  Summit Place Assisted Living, Helena House, Morning Side Assisted Living. The salad bar was sponsored by Tidewater Hospice and Roland Washington of We Island, and a bread station was sponsored by Publix.
Special thanks goes to the many generous sponsors: Butler Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep; CBC Bank; Low Country Home Oxygen; the Family of THK, THA Group; Coastal Neurology; Roxanne Cheney Home Organizations & Administration; Century Link; Morning Side; Summit Place of Beaufort; Marilynn and Jim Koerber; The Sandbar & Grill; IV Specialists; John Troutman; Eric Fennell; Hometown Realty; SCB&T; H.
