About The Kitchen Family Golf Tournament
Imagine life being normal where your parents, you and your kids attend family birthday and holiday celebrations year after year. The family has traditions such as passing down the stuffing recipe, playing cards and board games and spending summers on the lake. Now take one of your parents and slowly start watching your loved one disappear in front of your eyes as they lose their short-term memory, then all their other memories, and finally to when they don’t recognize you or any other relatives..
From the time my Mom was diagnosed, we thoroughly researched Alzheimer’s and discovered the pernicious nature of this disease. After participating in the first Memory Walk, I consulted with Jennifer Ferguson, executive director at Arbor, and my family about trying to raise more money for the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk. Since I play golf and have put together small tournaments and because my daughter, Melinda, had run large tournaments, we decided to put together a golf tournament to raise money for Alzheimer’s.
In 2008, we had our first tournament at Bentwater Golf Club in Acworth, Ga and succeeded in raising $5,000. In 2009, we were able to raise over $6600. We have had great cooperation from Bentwater and Canongate Golf Clubs, and in 2010, we will have our third tournament, again at Bentwater.
Until you are exposed to family or other relatives who have Alzheimer’s, it’s extremely difficult to recognize the symptoms and diagnose the disease because the symptoms differ from individual to individual. Unfortunately, there is no quick test to determine if your loved one has Alzheimer’s.
This disease isn’t going away, and it’s 100% fatal. There is no cure, only medication that tends to slow the symptoms. Approximately 10 million people in America have the disease, and this is our small way of trying to help educate and fund research to find causes and cures for this debilitating disease.
