On November 14, many Oklahomans joined Carter Healthcare for A Night in Monte Carlo to raise funds for the Oklahoma chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. As they enjoyed the evening, more than $50,000 was raised.
"We are always looking for a way to give back to our community," said Brad Carter, corporate compliance officer at Carter Healthcare. "As we explored ways to give back, it became obvious we should focus our attention on the Alzheimer's Association. Many of our patients and their families are impacted by Alzheimer's but so are many of our employees and their families."
The donated funds, totaling $50,455.53, were raised from the sale of event tickets, live and silent auctions, donations throughout the benefit as well as two community events with Kendra Scott and S&B Burger Joints.
"The efforts of Carter Healthcare in November to benefit us have been astounding," said Toni McGee, director of development at the Oklahoma chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. "Not only have they raised funds but they helped increase awareness of Alzheimer's."
As guests enjoyed dinner at A Night in Monte Carlo, three distinguished guests were honored. Dr. Jordan Tang, of Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for discovering the enzyme which causes Alzheimer's. Lance West, of KFOR News Channel 4, was honored with the Achievement in Advocacy Award for his never-ending efforts to raise awareness of Alzheimer's. Kimberly Hawkins, of Carter Healthcare, was presented the Carter Healthcare Excellence in Community Award for exhibiting active involvement in her community while demonstrating a positive image of Carter Healthcare and promoting a message of good health.
