Homebrewers Unite to End Alzheimer’s

Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 15 2013, the Northern Kentucky Homebrewers Guild and
Beef ‘O’ Brady’s in Union Kentucky will be hosting a pancake breakfast to raise money for the Walk to Cure Alzheimer’s hosted in October by the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati. Tickets are on sale now for only $7 each (kids under 5 are free) and money raised will be donated to the NKYHBG Alzheimer’s Walk team. Breakfast includes pancakes, bacon, breakfast potatoes, milk, coffee and juice. Tickets must be purchased in advance to ensure enough food is available for the event.

The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, this inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to reclaim the future for millions. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death (www.act.alz.org).

“I decided to start a team for the Northern Kentucky Homebrewers Guild because they are a very diverse group. They like to have fun, they exhibit tremendous camaraderie and they are a very generous and giving bunch of people. I believe those ingredients combine to make a perfect recipe for a team. Through some casual conversations with Guild members, I learned that Alzheimer’s had touched the lives of a few of the other members. When I mentioned the annual walk, the pancake breakfast, as well as a few other things we had planned to try and raise money for the walk team, I got some really favorable responses and offers to help. Amongst ourselves we’ve discussed trying to become the highest fundraising team in the history of the walk. While I don’t know if that will actually happen, I truly believe that we are on a good path and will make a tremendous financial impact to benefit he Alzheimer’s Association” said NKYHBG Team Captain, Tina Rouse.
