Do you worry about Alzheimer’s?  We do not have a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but we must find one.  Finding a cure starts with you.  Give generously to the CART Fund through your Rotary Club.  We had a successful Alzheimer’s Gala on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at the Gaillard Center in Charleston, SC to raise money for Alzheimer’s research.  Those in attendance had a terrific time enjoying a great meal, very good featured speaker music from the WhitsEnd Band and an entertaining auction.

Rotary District 7770 is the home district of CART, having been started at the Rotary Club of Sumter by Roger Ackerman in 1995.  Every year the CART (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) Fund gives research grants focused on finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, and the money raised through the gala will go toward that effort.
