Love Nancy to Host Wine for the Mind
Wine for the Mind will be held from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm on Friday, October 26, 2018 at the Coffey Barn in Cleveland, TN. The event will raise funds for Love Nancy, a nonprofit with programs focused on caregivers, families, and those with Alzheimer’s disease and memory impairments.
Love Nancy was started in 2014 by Catherine Patten in memory of her mother, Nancy. Diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer’s disease at 58, Nancy lost her battle in 2013 at the age of 63. Catherine created a team in Nancy’s honor for a Memory Walk. The team name was Love Nancy and from there, the nonprofit was born.
Wine for the Mind benefits programs including the Love Nancy CAREavan Program, Fun with Friends, and Memory Makers. CAREavan provides care packages and a social hour to caregivers and their loved ones. Care packages include pajamas, slippers, blankets and other selfcare items.
Fun with Friends provides community-based activities to young adults with special needs by connecting them to employment services, volunteer opportunities, and social activities. Currently, Fun with Friends serves 16 families.
Memory Makers provides caregivers and loved ones opportunities to take part in memory making activities. These include going to dinner and a movie, golf, and trips. The program seeks to provide opportunities for the family to spend time together and work through the diagnosis of memory impairment.
Wine for the Mind will fund these encouraging and much needed programs in our community. Tickets are $45 for one and $80 for two. For more information click here!
