Bay Shore, NY – The Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center, Inc. is pleased to announce its 3rd Annual Walk For Alzheimer’s and Clambake. “We are delighted that Atlantis Marine World will once again host this spectacular event for the third consecutive year,” states Mary Ann Malack-Ragona, ADRC Executive Director/CEO and creator of ADRC’s Walk For Alzheimer’s events. “For our 2014 Walk we have moved Registration, Continental Breakfast & Opening Ceremonies inside to the Sea Star Banquet Hall in an effort to provide a more comfortable experience for our Walk participants. Joining us for Opening Ceremonies, as in past years, will be the Liberty Bells members of the New York USO Troupe. In addition, there will be a special Hope Garden Ceremony, and a new, longer Walk route.”
Participants raising $100 or more per person will receive a Walk lunch tote, Walk t-shirt, and will be admitted to ADRC’s Annual Clambake. Admission to the Clambake also includes admission to the Aquarium where visitors will spend the afternoon with penguins, otters, exotic fish, sharks, sea lions, butterflies and birds.
Registration/Continental Breakfast begins at 8:30; Opening Ceremonies start promptly at 10:00 a.m. At 11:00 a.m. Kevin the Penguin will help cut the ribbon at the Walk Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies. The Sea Star Banquet Hall is adjacent to the Long Island Aquarium, which is located at 431 Main St., Riverhead, NY.
