Attorneys and staff from the Adams and Reese Memphis office volunteered at the 9th Annual Forget-Me-Not Trivia Night fundraiser, held April 12th at Christian Brothers High School, to benefit Alzheimer’s Day Services of Memphis, Inc., a nonprofit organization established in January 1983 for the purpose of operating a day care program for persons with Alzheimer’s disease.
More than 300 people attended the event, and volunteers served as table hosts, rounding up trivia answer sheets from their assigned tables after each of ten rounds, and also encouraging participants to purchase raffle tickets which contributed to the funds raised.
In addition to providing volunteers for the event, Adams and Reese also raised money to contribute 16 $25 gift cards that were given away as door prizes
