Patchogue, NY - December 11th, 2013 - Last year, Patchogue resident Gary Cessman lost his mother to Alzheimer’s Disease just before Christmas. To honor the memory of his mother, he put up a holiday light display and raised money to help support programs and services, as well as research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease.
This year, Mr. Cessman participated in the Riverhead WALK for Alzheimer’s, produced by Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center, Inc. (ADRC), and raised additional funding to support the work being done at ADRC. “I’d really like to be a huge part of this fight,” he said. To that end, he is putting up his holiday light display again this year and all the proceeds raised will benefit the Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center.
To see his Holiday Light display, please visit him at 35 Engelke Street in Patchogue. Hours for the display are from 5:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
For more information about ADRC or the Holiday Light display, please contact Mary Ann Malack-Ragona, ED/CEO for ADRC at (631) 820-8068.
