Remember this ...

Original post made by Don Frances on Feb 25, 2010

PATTY GUINTO represents the Northern California chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, which keeps an office at [Web Link 1060 La Avenida Street] in Mountain View.

Recently I received an e-mail from Ms. Guinto asking for help. It seems the group's upcoming benefit could use a boost — and as ==I Voice== readers have shown many times, they are always ready to support a worthy cause.

Her e-mail is just the sort I like: well-written and succinct, with some flattery directed our way, so I'll just give you the bulk of it:

==I Dear Mr. Frances,==
==I Thanks in large part to== [Web Link ==I your coverage==] ==I of the Alzheimer's Association's Memories in the Making program, in which individuals with mid- to late-stage Alzheimer's participate in art classes to improve communication and self confidence, our Memories in the Making Art & Wine Auction in 2009 raised $92,000 to support families coping with Alzheimer's disease in our community.==
==I We will be hosting the event again on Friday, March 5. Unfortunately, we have not been seeing as many people register for the event as we had last year.==
==I I am hoping that you might be able to run a calendar listing or event announcement in this week's edition if it's not too late!==

The [Web Link Memories in the Making Art & Wine Auction], emceed by [Web Link KPIX-TV reporter Thuy Vu], is Friday, March 5 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the Computer History Museum. All proceeds benefit the Alzheimer's Association. To register, click [Web Link here] or call (800) 272-3900
