RETIRED NFL PLAYERS GOLF TO RAISE MONEY FOR LOCAL ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION
“The event was a success in our eyes,” said Brad Jacobsen, regional sales director of Constant Care Family Management, the property management company for Autumn Leaves memory care communities. “We really appreciated the celebrities coming out to help us raise money and attract golfers.”
Autumn Leaves of Vernon Hills co-sponsored the event with Brightstar Care. The event allows both groups to help people in the community who are living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. The companies are already looking forward to holding the charity golf tournament next year.
“Autumn Leaves is a memory care residence in the Chicagoland area serving the same population of folks served by the Alzheimer’s Association,” said Jacobsen. “It has been an honor to help raise funds for the organization’s efforts.”
The event included 24 raffle prizes gifted by 18 supporting businesses, and 13 of the holes had sponsors. The tournament will have a more regional focus next year.
