Opportunity to Serve
We're Back at the USO ... March 16, 2023

We have been honoring our Armed Forces personnel for many years - proof here in pictures taken from our 25th anniversary book created in 2009.

After a COVID hiatus, we're reviving the tradition, as we make plans to head to Hartsfield-Jackson's USO to personally meet and greet our service personnel and thank them in person for their bravery and commitment to serve us. We need YOU to help us make that happen.

We will be serving the “All American” lunch of hot dogs, chips, homemade cookies, fresh fruit, bottled water ... and this time we will be adding a portion of baked Ziti. We expect 75-100 service personnel.

Contact Charlie Augello to enlist as a volunteer or cookie baker - by email at Italian@e48thstreetmarket.com

Golf Tournament Update
Why Your Support is Important ...

There are at least two great reasons to support our May 15, 2023 FORE the Memories Golf Tournament:

  • It supports the work of the Alzheimer's Association. As you can see from the statistics here, Alzheimer's impacts both individuals with the disease and their caregivers. The Alzheimer's Association provides care for Alzheimer's patients and support for caregivers, as well as driving medical research. Our support helps them help more people every day.
  • The tournament also benefits the Rotary Club of Dunwoody Charitable Fund and some of the projects we do to make a difference in the community.

That's why we're asking you to help identify local businesses and individuals who might want to be Tournament Sponsors - because it's good exposure for their business and/or because they want to help in the work we do in the community.

With the help of the Alzheimer's Association, we have created a great sponsor package you can share with everyone who might be interested in becoming a tournament sponsor.  To make that easy, we've added the document to our Resource library - you can click on 2023 Fore the Memories Golf Tournament Sponsor Package to take a look, download to share with friends or businesses, and even take a look at what you might like to do to sponsor this major fund-raising event.

You can also direct people to our website: 2023 Event - FORE! The Memories
