DEVILS RIDGE CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC

This is the 15th Year the Devils Ridge MGA has sponsored the
DEVILS RIDGE CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC
to aid local charities.

The 2019 tournament is Wednesday, Sept. 18. This year, we have joined Dementia Alliance of North Carolina in their fight against Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. Last year, with the help of corporate and individual sponsors, the support of the Devils Ridge membership, and the players and volunteers who make the tournament possible, we were able to raise $50,000 for Dementia Alliance of North Carolina.  All of this money will be used in North Carolina for patient and care giver assistance, and research focused on the treatment, prevention and cure of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia related diseases.

This year, we have set a goal of raising more than $50,000 for this worthwhile charity. To achieve this goal, we need your help. Please review the various sponsorship opportunities and select one that best fits your ability to help.

Your donation is tax-deductible under IRS code 501-c3, 56-1501117.

Dementia Alliance of North Carolina

Alzheimer’s North Carolina is now Dementia Alliance of North Carolina, a name that more accurately communicates our mission, our vision and our unique role at the intersection of local support, education and research for all types of dementia.

We believe that everyone impacted by dementia deserves access to resources that deliver hope and quality of life until there is world without dementia. That’s why our primary goal is to improve the lives of caregivers, people living with dementia and others in North Carolina impacted by all types of dementia, including but not limited to Alzheimer’s.
