Longest Day Dunk for Alzheimer’s


NCWLIFE’s Granstrom Gets Dunked

WENATCHEE, WA – NCWLIFE General Manager and Sports Director Eric Granstrom volunteered to get dunked for a good cause Thursday.  Blossom Valley Assisted Living hosted the “Longest Day” event at its facility on Orchard Avenue in Wenatchee.  The day-long event is meant to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s and donated funds for the Alzheimer’s Foundation.

Several of NCWLIFE’s staff lined up for the chance to dunk the boss.  It was supposed to be a $5 donation per three balls thrown, the crowd assembled took several extra throws to make sure Granstrom got wet.

Blossom Valley’s Executive Director Rhonda Bellinger was thankful for the community’s involvement.  She said, “we’ve had so many dignitaries volunteer to be dunked to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s today.  It’s just incredible!  We also have food and games and the day will conclude with a luminary tonight at 6 o’clock.”

The evening event is meant as a remembrance for those who have passed from Alzheimer’s Disease; those living with Alzheimer’s Disease; or for those with family members touched by the illness.  It will begin at Blossom Creek at 6:00 p.m.

Granstrom has been touched by the illness personally as his mother, Judy, suffers from Dementia and his grandfather passed away from Alzheimer’s.
