This September, OceanView will hold its second annual on-campus Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This month, our Legacy Legs team had a tasty kick-off to their fundraising efforts with a Gelato Fest!
Gelato Fiasco of Brunswick, Maine, generously donated an assortment of gelato and sorbet. Flavors included Espresso Chip, Cookie Therapy, Dark Chocolate Noir, Madagascar Vanilla, and Wild Maine Blueberry – made with blueberries handpicked in Blue Hill, Maine, only a couple of days before!
Gelato Fiasco staff member, Alisa, talked about the founding of this local Maine company, what gelato is and how it is made. For a suggested $5 donation, OceanView residents and staff lined up for the sinfully-delicious treat, perfect for the sunny summer afternoon.
The event raised over $500 – an excellent start to our fundraising efforts in anticipation of the OceanView Alzheimer’s Walk right here on campus on September 26th! All funds raised directly benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Chapter.
