Patton High School Raises Over $1000 For Ryan Blaney Family Foundation
Patton High School located in Morgantown, NC, held an Alzheimer’s Awareness night in conjunction with the Ryan Blaney Family Foundation on Thursday, November 30th, during their boy’s and girl’s varsity basketball games.
When boy’s head coach, Dennis Brittain, reached out regarding an Alzheimer’s night, we were eager to be a part of it. Community events such as these have been on our on radar for some time, as we’re hoping to attend more events such as these to get word out in different communities about the two brain health causes that mean so much to us.
Patton High sold 50/50 raffle tickets with half the proceeds going to the RBFF. We also provided the school with a basket full of RBFF and Ryan Blaney items to also be raffled off to help raise money. The winner of the 50/50 money was so gracious that she returned the money back to the Foundation.
The school graciously allowed us to set up a table full of free informational pamphlets about Alzheimer’s, Concussions, and the RBFF, along with merchandise available for purchase. Leah Reeves, our Director of Programs & Marketing talked to the crowed in-between games about prevalence of Alzheimer’s and Concussions in our local communities and what the Ryan Blaney Family Foundation is doing to help those who need it.
In total, Patton High raised over $1000 for the RBFF, and we couldn’t be more honored to have worked with the school. Because of events like these, we are able to talk to community members who are dealing with or know people who are struggling with these brain health issues. A huge THANK YOU to Patton High School!
