SAULT STE. MARIE: In an effort to stay safe and protected during this time of uncertainty, the Alzheimer Society of Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma District has made the decision to cancel its Ladies Night Out fundraiser which would have taken place on Thursday, May 21. This fundraising event was scheduled to help raise the needed funds to provide local services to those individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease.
“Each year we look forward to hosting the Ladies Night Out event and we know that people look forward to attending in order to socialize with their friends and family, all while supporting local people living with Alzheimer’s disease,” said Bea Fioramanti, Resource Development Coordinator.
Fioramanti continues, “Although we can’t gather together this year, we want to give everyone the opportunity to continue their support, if they are able, and stay connected with their friends and family while hosting a virtual Ladies Night In! Socializing and fun are an important part of everyone’s health so please consider participating virtually while supporting our important services.”
Although the Ladies Night Out fundraiser has been cancelled the Luxurious Ladies Raffle tickets are still available for purchase. Due to Covid-19 the date of the draw has been changed to Monday, September 21 at 4:30 p.m.
Tickets are only $10.00 each and only 4050 tickets are available for sale.
Proceeds will provide services to local persons living with dementia. Must be 18 years old or older to purchase and redeem tickets.
