MARQUETTE — One local retirement home is doing their parting in helping to find a cure for a disease that affects millions around the world.

Millcreek Assisted Living will be hosting a pancake breakfast on Sunday, August 12, and will begin at 9 a.m.

The employees and families at Millcreek want to do their part in helping to find a cure for Alzheimer’s.

“Our families and our residents are directly affected by Alzheimer’s. Employees and families of Millcreek have been pushing the fundraising this year for the Alzheimer’s Association” said Millcreek’s Activities Director, Beth O’Connor. “We’ve always been involved, but this year we’re really trying to push it further.”

Millcreek is close to hitting their goals of raising $4,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association

The pancake breakfast is open to the public and costs $5 per person.

There will be all-you-can-eat pancakes and sausage along with coffee and juice.

All proceeds will benefit the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.
