Golfing for Alzheimer’s Association a Success!

This summer marked the 12th anniversary for Tucker’s Golf Outing benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association of South Jersey. We had a beautiful day with great weather and fun, with limited good golf, too. Thanks to our sponsors and attendees, we raised a 12 year best of $8,378 this year, for a grand total of $66,618.

Alzheimer’s Disease is an incurable disease of the brain, which worsens over time. Alzheimer’s represents 50-80% of all dementia and is the 6th leading cause of death in America. Of the top 10 causes of death in the U.S., Alzheimer’s is the only one without a way to prevent, cure or slow the disease. The Alzheimer’s Association is “the leading global, voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care and support, and the largest private, nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research.”
