Our neighbor, Carol Gomrick, who lives on W North Avenue, is asking for our support by attending, donating or sponsoring her foundation’s event, “Roll for a Reason” on November 6th at J. Verno’s Studio in the Southside. This is a casino night gala event with proceeds to support Clear Thoughts Foundation (CTF), a local non-profit dedicated to raising money to fund the research to cure dementia. CTF is unique as the majority of research is towards drugs for dementia management not to cure this disease. CTF is a local Pittsburgh organization started in 2010, born from first-hand experience of watching our loved ones suffer and finally succumbing from the disease’s debilitating effects. As a CTF Board member, Carol will also be asking local businesses for donations to build an “Allegheny West” gift basket for the gala’s silent auction.

Your generosity really does make a difference. An example of this is the money raised from the 2014 CTF gala event which featured a performance from Mike Super who appeared and was a finalist on America’s Got Talent. CTF was able to raise and award a grant of over $65,000 to a local researcher in the field of dementia research. Visit the CTF website to ready about the published research resulting from this grant.

Thank you for your support in CTF’s efforts.
