Alzheimer’s Association to Host Cookout

Your lunch plans next Friday just got easier – have the Alzheimer’s Association deliver hot, delicious brats, pork chop and chicken sandwiches right to your workplace.

The Central Illinois Chapter is hosting a Chops and Chips Cookout from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Friday, April 26 at the chapter office in Glen Plaza Shopping Center, 606 W. Glen Ave., Peoria. For a $6 donation, you get a brat or sandwich of your choosing and chips. Drinks also will be available for purchase. Board members and staff will man the grills and prepare orders.

As an added bonus, the chapter will make deliveries between 10:30 a.m. and noon to locations within the Peoria area that order five or more meals. Whether pickup or carryout, please order ahead by calling the office at 681.1100 (toll free at 800.272.3900), or faxing your order to 309.681.1101.

Proceeds will benefit the Peoria Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which will be held at 2 p.m. Oct. 6 at Liberty Park on the Riverfront. The Walk is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research programs. Held annually in hundreds of communities across the country, this inspiring event calls on volunteers of all ages to become champions in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

The Central Illinois Chapter supports eight walks within its 20-county service area. Walks will be held from September and October in the following locations: Peru, Canton, Quincy, Macomb, Galesburg, Dixon, Pekin and Peoria.
