Join us for Shall We Dance?
Alzheimer Benefit Dance, co-hosted by Gowin Parc Alzheimer Facility and EIU School of Continuing Education's Academy of Lifetime Learning. The event takes place on September 22, 2012, in the EIU University Ballroom, and will feature a silent auction, which will support Alzheimer services and research. 

In addition to the silent auction, the event will feature a quilt raffle, dancing, music, drinks and hors d’oeuvres.   Proceeds from the event will benefit the Alzheimer's Association — Greater Illinois Chapter. All donations from the event will stay within Illinois where the Chapter has provided reliable information and care consultation, created supportive services for families, increased funding for dementia research, and influenced public policy changes. Today, the Greater Illinois Chapter serves the more than a half million Illinois residents affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

We're excited for this event because it is an opportunity to benefit a great cause and participate in a fun and entertaining night. For more information, email academy@eiu.edu or call us at 217-581-5114.
