Maefair Health Care Center of Trumbull hosted a Wine Tasting Fundraiser on Wednesday, Sept. 18 to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Local businesses contributed to the success by donating Gift Certificates to the event. Maefair would like to thank all the businesses who donated to the cause: Jade Salon, Chip’s Restaurant, Spotted Horse, Gray Goose, Center Street Social, Parker Steak and Scotch, Vazzy’s, Colony Grill, Stockbridge Cheesecake, Comfort Keepers, and Northbridge Health Care Center.

This year’s Walk will take place on Sunday, Sept. 29 at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk from 9 until noon.

Alzheimer’s is more than just memory loss — it is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, according to Maefair. Unlike other common causes of death, Alzheimer’s has no.proven method, cure or way to slow its progression. The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s is the nation’s largest event to help raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
