Karaoke Time – The Longest Day Family Fun!


For Jeff Beebe, karaoke was the obvious choice to bring his friends and family together on The Longest Day. At least 40 people came to his house to sing. “I can’t express my gratitude and delight,” Jeff said.

Jeff participated in The Longest Day to honor his father, who died from vascular dementia in 2014. “I was so thankful for the resources available at the Alzheimer’s Association. I just wanted to do something that would get people’s attention and point it toward the great work being done at the Association,” Jeff said.

Jeff’s fundraising success — his team raised over $8,000 — largely came from donations through Facebook and his workplace. “I just tried to tell my personal story, and I was overwhelmed by the response I received from those with similar experiences,” he said.
