COMC makes its 1st Alzheimer’s donation

When the Cards_For_Alzheimers account officially went public in April, COMC promised to write a check to The Alzheimer’s Association, Western and Central Washington State Chapter.

COMC employee Dave Elmore, the creator and facilitator of this account, didn’t know when that would be. None of us did.

But after reaching the $500 mark in total sales last month, Dave figured it was time for Tim to cut the first check.  So on Tuesday, Patricia Hunter from The Alzheimer’s Association, met with Dave and Tim outside our office.

The Alzheimer’s Association, which will present “Memories Are Made of This – Dine Around The World Cocktail Gala” Nov. 13 at The Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle, will use this money to further its mission “To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.”

Special thanks to the newest card donors to the account — baseballcardsetc, ilovecardz, MrSplinter, SportsHeroes — as well as all of the local donors who are too numerous to mention.

Our goal is to formalize the process for donating cards to charity via COMC before the end of the year so that you will be able to make donations in time for this year’s taxes. Keep your eyes on the blog for further updates.
