Celebrating “The Longest Day” at Milwaukee Catholic Home

May 31, 2019 | Leadership, What's New

The Longest Day is the day with the most light – the summer solstice. On June 21, thousands of participants from across the world come together to fight the darkness of Alzheimer’s disease. Together, we will use our creativity and passion to raise funds and awareness for the care, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Currently, more than 50 million people worldwide are living with dementia, and this number is set to skyrocket to 75 million by the year 2030. To do our part, Milwaukee Catholic Home will be hosting a community cookout and happy hour. Please join us to support and raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association!

With a nod to the first day of summer, we’re having a cookout on The Residence patio from 11:00am – 1:00pm. Join us for fresh off the grill burgers and brats and all the accompaniments, and stay for live music and a 50/50 raffle! The suggested donation is $10 with all proceeds benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association.

Beginning at 1:30pm, The Health and Rehabilitation Center will have brain stations set up in the courtyard, showcasing the many ways MCH supports brain health. Included will be stations dedicated to physical fitness, cognitive health, and the Memories in the Making art program. Stop by each of the stations to discover how MCH combats memory loss, and stay for a special happy hour featuring purple cocktails and brain-healthy appetizers!

Come to one or both events and be sure to wear purple to show your support! Please RSVP to Amy O’Connor at 414-220-3214 for the cookout, or Madeline Dahl at 414-220-4610 x.3322 for the brain stations and happy hour. We look forward to fighting the darkness of Alzheimer’s together!
