For the past eight years Azura Memory Care of Eau Claire has been hosting a City-Wide Thrift Sale to benefit the Alzheimers’ Association. Something that started in the garage of a Team Member has grown so much that it now takes up over 5,000 square feet and includes donations from around 200 families.
As the Sale has grown in size so has the need for volunteers, with approximately 400 hours of time being donated this year to make the Sale happen. Add to this the over 1,000 people who come out to shop and support the Sale one would expect to raise a fair amount, but how about a record $15,000!!!
Thanks to the generous partnership of Holiday Vacations who matched 100% of what was raised at the Sale over $15,000 was raised for the Alzheimer’s Association by the Azura Memory Care Team in Eau Claire.
It gets even better, Holiday Vacations has already committed to matching funds again next year, so mark your calendars for Friday, August 7 and Saturday, August 8, 2015 and help us Sale to Save Memories!
"We want to thank you for the loving special care you took of our mother, Diane. It was truly mom's home and you all became part of our family. Everything was home for her....from the beautiful rooms, large sunny windows all around, good food made with love, fun and personal activities from people who really loved our mom. We would highly recommend your facility to anyone. The staff from the director, to the doctor, to the nurse, to the caregivers and the maintenance man were all extremely helpful, caring, loving and professional. There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate all of you. Your exceptional care, kindness, and love were beyond anything we could have imagined. You were part of our family, and we will miss you." - Gail Sommers and Deborah Guse
