The Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut Chapter, announces a milestone in the organization’s history. Greenwich resident Barbara Brock Zaccagnini and her sons, Douglas and Steven, raised $50,000 to benefit the recent Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The funds represent the single largest donation related to the event surpassing the previous benchmark of $16,000.
The Zaccagnini Family gathered donations at Dougie’s Stand By, co-owned by Douglas and Steven Zaccagnini. The Port Chester staple not only serves famous Dougie Dogs and Godfather sandwiches but, also, sponsors its annual chili eating contest, hot dog eating contest and Alzheimer’s Day.
The date is set for Sunday, September 20, 2015 when all proceeds will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut Chapter.
Barbara Brock Zaccagnini will also sponsor the upcoming Greenwich Gala, Celebrating Hope 2015. The third annual event will take place on Friday, May 1 at Richards of Greenwich. “I am really trying to grow this effort and be helpful since this disease hits home for so many people,” states Zaccagnini.
