Art and Music Bash for Alzheimer's Held in Rosewood Village

Posted: Updated:

An assisted living community in Charlottesville raised money with arts and music Sunday afternoon to help people cope with Alzheimer's disease.

Rosewood Village held its fourth annual Art and Music Bash for Alzheimer's. The event featured different kinds of art, a live performance by the band 180, along with food from local vendors.

The event was started in honor of Patsy Davis - one of Rosewood's residents.

"She approached me about doing a fundraiser for her mother at Rosewood Village and she thought something that had art and music - all the things that her mother loved but she couldn't enjoy anymore because of her Alzheimer's would bring people - we could sell tickets and raise money," said Jaclyn Tahboub, Rosewood Village marketer.

Organizers say the event typically raises between $3,000 and $5,000. The funds will support the Rosewood Village team in the 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer's.
