Nonprofit Senior Living Community White Horse Village Raises $17,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association

White Horse Village, a nonprofit senior living community, held its first Walk to End Alzheimer’s on November 14, 2020, raising $17,000 for Alzheimer’s Association. The event featured a week of events for residents and team members, including a yard and window decorating contest, costume contest, water walking, gift baskets, and multiple walking courses of varying difficulty. COVID-19 safety protocols were enforced at all walk activities.

Guest judges participated virtually to select the decorating contest winners and support the community’s walk with personal video messages. The judges were Kristen Hagopian, WCHE Radio Host; Dr. Laura Sicola, national speaker; Jenna Meisner, Morning News Anchor for PHL17; Tracy Price, Director of PR/Marketing for the Delaware County Bar Association; and Bruce Sham, Senior Vice President at Mass Mutual.

“It is impressive to see a nonprofit organization wholeheartedly fundraise for another nonprofit,” comments Susan Abtouche, Vice President of Mission Enhancement & Sales. “There was tremendous energy on campus during walk week. Many of our residents and team members have been personally touched by Alzheimer’s disease.”

White Horse Village offers a full range of senior living options and healthcare services, including Four Season Memory Care. The specialized facility cares for individuals with cognitive changes. A highly trained and compassionate nursing team strives to maximize each resident’s independence and provide person-centered care in a therapeutic setting.
