ALZHEIMER'S RESEARCH

Since 1985, NARFE members have played a major role in seeking a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Through its partnership with the National Alzheimer’s Association, NARFE supports research into the cause, prevention, and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease as well as a cure for Alzheimer’s and related disorders. Public education on the need for research – our only tool for conquering the disease – also is an important focus. NARFE Chapter 1270 is proud of its support for this worthy cause and strives to provide its members opportunities to make a difference.

NARFE Alzheimer’s Fund

In collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association, NARFE members have donated more than $10 million to the NARFE Alzheimer’s Fund. 100 percent of NARFE donations to the Fund are allocated to research. NARFE is a member of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Zenith Society, a group of about 50 donors representing the highest level of giving. NARFE is one of only four organizations belonging to the Zenith Society and, of the four organizations, NARFE is the “number one” contributor.

Felice PearlOver the last few years Chapter 1270 has consistently ranked in the top two fundraising chapters nationally and number one within the Virginia Federation of Chapters. This honor has been achieved only because of a team effort, especially with the annual presentation of its annual Fashion Show, Dining for Dollars and document shredding donation events, 50/50 drawings, and individual members' donations. In addition of the team effort, much of the credit goes to Felice Pearl (see Felice in the left inset receiving recognition by Gaston Gianni and Pierce Johnson) for her motivation and vision in getting the chapter organized and motivated. Many thanks, Felice for your dedication. We are now into our ninth year of the fashion show and everyone is excited to see what is in store come this fall. At the most recent VFC convention, the chapter was recognized with a certificate of excellence which Jim Little accepted for the chapter. In the last ten years, Chapter 1270 has raised more than $85,000. Keep up the good work!
