Gull House Sweetheart Dance Raises over $3,000 for Alzheimer's Association
Beebe Medical Center's Gull House Adult Activity Center started its fundraising early for the Alzheimer's Association's Memory Walk with a "Sweetheart Dance" on Friday, February 11, 2005. The night was filled with fun, dancing, and fellowship for clients, caregivers and friends. The money collected from ticket sales, 50/50 raffle, silent auction and photographs (courtesy of Timeless Images in Lewes) totaled approximately $3,200. This money will benefit the Delaware Valley Alzheimer's Association. The Memory Walk in Rehoboth Beach will be October 1, 2005, at Grove Park.
