Laona M. Kitchen Foundation: Annual Golf Tournament

Annual Golf Tournament

Join us for the 2018 Laona M. Kitchen Foundation Golf Tournament benefiting Alzheimer's on September 14th

The Laona M. Kitchen FoundationImagine life being normal where your parents, you and your kids attend family birthday and holiday celebrations year after year.  The family has traditions such as passing down the stuffing recipe, playing cards and board games and spending summers on the lake. Now take one of your parents and slowly start watching your loved one disappear in front of your eyes as they lose their short-term memory, then all their other memories, and finally to when they don’t recognize you or any other relatives.

From the time Laona Kitchen was diagnosed, the family thoroughly researched Alzheimer’s and discovered the pernicious nature of this disease. After participating in the first Memory Walk, Gary Kitchen consulted with Jennifer Ferguson, executive director at Arbor, and his family about trying to raise more money for the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk. The family decided to turn their passion for golf into a golf tournament to raise money for Alzheimer’s.

In 2008, the family had their first tournament at Bentwater Golf Club in Acworth, Ga and succeeded in raising $5,000. In those 10 years, we have exceeded $75,000 raised for our Resite Care Voucher Program for Caregivers!
