Garage sale benefits alzheimers disease

June 23, 2006

Albany -- If you love a good yard sale, here's a story for you. The Alzheimer's Association of Albany is holding a huge garage sale tomorrow.

All the proceeds go to find a cure for the disease and help sufferers. Take a look at some of the items for sale. The garage sale starts tomorrow at 7 am the Alzheimer's Association office on Gillionville Road.

Director Nancy Goode says it's important to build community awareness and support for people with the disease.

"There are over 18-hundred people in just Dougherty County that have been diagnosed with Alzheimers and probably a lot that we don't know that have it. But we provide support for those people, their family caregivers," said Regional Office Director Nancy Goode.

Also tomorrow, Hand Wash and Detail located right across the street from the garage sale is donating part of the cost of a car wash to the Alzheimer's Association.
