In their ongoing endeavor to raise both funds and awareness of Alzheimers, the residents and administration at Riverview Terrace are having a Silent Auction to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. 

Alzheimers is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, and it's estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages are living with Alzheimer’s dementia in 2018.

Riverview’s Silent Auction will be held Friday, Oct. 5 at the facility at 114 Highland Drive from 5 – 8 p.m., and is open to the public. They have received many donations from local businesses and individuals, including monetary gifts, gift cards and bags. At the same type of event two years prior, they raised over $2,500.

Organizers welcome more donations for the auction, and may contact the facility at 931-473-2033.

Riverview Terrace observed the “longest day” on June 20 by having a Pie in the Face activity, with administrator Lori Feuchtinger, D.O.N. Jessica Maxwell, dining services coordinator Monda Nichols and lifestyle coordinator Linda Newman Greene all getting pied. Residents and visitors made monetary donations to throw at the individuals during the fun event.

Americare facilities in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Mississippi and Tennessee participated in the “longest day,” and their fundraising efforts netted $67,739.
