“This was our first year to participate in the walk, and our residents and staff were so enthusiastic about participating and raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Association,”
In the months leading up to the walk, The Stayton hosted a series of events to raise funds and awareness for the cause. Some of the fundraising events included a scratch off board between residents and associates, tickets for employees to purchase one extra day off, ticket sales to vote for the “Stayton Super Hero,” and “Art for a Cause,” an art display in the community’s lobby where eight resident artists displayed their work and other residents voted for their favorite piece by dropping donations in a box by the piece.
The Stayton’s sister communities, Edgemere in Dallas, The Buckingham in Houston, and Querencia at Barton Creek in Austin also participated in their respective cities Walk to End Alzheimer’s events. With all four communities fundraising efforts and the match from the SQLC Charitable Foundation, SQLC will have raised more than $73,104 for the Alzheimer’s Association this year.
In 2008, SQLC founded the SQLC Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit foundation that operates to make grants to and support programs and services that advance the interests of seniors, from Alzheimer’s research to education.
