What are Friendraisers?? They are third party events organized by friends and supporters that benefit the Alzheimer's Association Southeastern Virginia Chapter. These individuals or groups have a personal connection to our cause and are looking to engage others to support their efforts. The awareness and funds raised through these events help the Alzheimer's Association move closer to a cure for Alzheimer's disease! If you are interested in hosting a Friendraiser of your own, contact our Development Manager, Jennifer Chavez, at 800.272.3900 or email
