The Buckingham Celebrates Summer Solstice with Pool Party to Raise Money for Alzheimer’s Association
“On the longest day, teams around the world come together to honor those living with Alzheimer’s with a special activity,” said Cathy Lightfoot, director of sales and marketing at The Buckingham. “The Summer Solstice party was a fabulous event and a great way to honor those living with and caring for those with Alzheimer’s while also raising money for the cause. It was a meaningful day for all who participated.”
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than five million Americans are living with the disease, and every 67 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s. Because of these staggering figures, The Buckingham holds year round fundraisers to support the Alzheimer’s Association work towards a cure.
