Residents at Edgehill, a Benchmark Senior Living Community, understand the power of uniting for a cause and engaging with their neighborhood to make a difference. Edgehill residents put together a fun family carnival-themed fundraiser just in time to kick off World Alzheimer’s Month in September and raised more than $24,000 to support the Alzheimer’s Association.

Attendees enjoyed games of chance, classic carnival games, a rousing performance by the Flying Fingers Jug Band, food and cocktails.

“It’s always great to see the community come together, especially for such an important philanthropic cause,” says Mary Camilli-Bernat, Director of Independent Living Activities, Edgehill. “This was an entirely resident-run event and we are proud of the hard work our Social Action Committee put into pulling this program together.”
