Purple Party at the Mills to Honor
People With Alzheimer’s & Caregivers
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STOCKTON -- The Prallsville Mills will host a party and fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association on June 21st, the longest day of the year and a day set aside to honor the challenges faced by people living with Alzheimer’s and those who care for them.
The Purple Party at the Mill is being organized by Tim Weaver and his husband Phil Gutis, who was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s two years ago. Phil is the Deputy Director of the Delaware River Mill Society, which manages the Prallsville Mills. Phil also sits on the Early Stage Advisory Group for the national Alzheimer’s Association.
“The Longest Day is a mixing bowl of tens of thousands of people gathering individually in their communities to do any activity they love to help end Alzheimer’s,” Weaver said. “It honors the significant challenges faced by Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers, each of whom can often feel like their days will never end.”
The Purple Party will feature the Eastern Hellbenders, a well-known area band, as well as donated art, games and dancing. The party will run from 6:30 pm to 10 pm; purple attire is requested but not required. (Purple is the color of the Alzheimer’s Association.)
The Longest Day is an initiative of the Alzheimer’s Association to raise funds for research and raise awareness for care and support of the more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s.
