TRACY LAWRENCE RAISES MONEY FOR ALZHEIMER'S CHARITY

At the recent Alzheimer's Association's "Thanks For The Memories" fundraising dinner in Ft. Worth on April 21, Tracy Lawrence was the celebrity guest. According to Westwood One, Tracy helped the event raise more than $130,000 with attendance topping out at 450 people-nearly 40% more than last year. Tracy and his band got a standing ovation at the end of their set. "Tracy Lawrence and his band are tops in our book!" said Lyn Downing, director of development at the North Central Texas Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. Funds raised at this event support the programs and services in the Ft. Worth/Arlington, Texas office, including a 24/7 telephone help line, educational programs and seminars, a lending library, support groups, a "Family Care" program, and a national "Safe Return" program. The fundraiser was close to Tracy's heart. He's a member of the Alzheimer's Association's National Advisory Council, and his grandmother, Pirley Woods, died of complications associated with Alzheimer's disease in November 2003.
