Join us this June for the 13th annual Forget-Me-Not Days benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association. Each year, volunteers go into the community to collect donations for the Alzheimer’s Association and raise awareness of the disease. In exchange for a donation, we hand out packets of Forget-Me-Not flower seeds to be planted in honor of the more than five million people with Alzheimer’s.

What started as a grassroots fundraiser has blossomed into a national fundraising campaign that has helped raise more than $3.3 million for the Alzheimer’s Association through Forget Me Not Days collections and corporate donations.

Blondes vs. Brunettes


Alzheimer’s disease does not choose sides.
Alzheimer’s disease does not keep score.
Alzheimer’s disease does not play fair.

On the football field we may be Blondes and Brunettes, but together we are UNITED as ONE team in the fight against Alzheimer’s. We play for our grandparents, parents and ourselves. We play because unless we change the course of this disease, it will take a devastating toll on the families of future generations. Game day will come and go, but we will continue to fight Alzheimer’s disease until we win.

Alzheimer’s disproportionately affects women, both as people with the disease and as caregivers. As an event created and played by women, Blondes vs. Brunettes sends a message of solidarity: We plan to meet this disease with energy and attitude. We are the generation that can provide both the fuel and the spark in this fight. We are Blondes vs. Brunettes and we are a team united to tackle Alzheimer’s disease!!!

Help us tackle Alzheimer's! Game Day is June 27, 2015. Click here for more information or contact Bethany Moore at 847.779.6952 or

Casual for a Cause

In the Casual for a Cause program, a company encourages its employees to dress down or wear jeans for a day (or more) in exchange for a small donation (usually $5) to the Alzheimer's Association. We can provide you with a sticker (or you can use your own) to be given to each employee that pays the donation to dress down. By wearing our sticker that day, employees display their commitment to the cause. Contact your local office for details.
