Longest Day Celebration on Friday

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

In an effort to raise awareness about Alzheimer's, the Marquis Grand Park, along with Synergy HomeCare and Highgate Senior Living, are sponsoring the Longest Day Celebration. This event takes place on June 21, the longest day of the year, and will honor caregivers and those with Alzheimer's.

"It's important that people learn about it and that we raise money for it to go to research and to help those caregivers," Community Relations Director of Marquis Grand Park, Lea Ann Yucha, says. "A lot of money is spent on care-giving for people with Alzheimer's. So we're really trying to grow the awareness and also raise money for a great cause."

The event happens Friday in the parking lot of the Vig in the Heights. The local band "Downtime" will perform. A $5 wristband cover fee will get you admission, with drinks and food available to purchase.

Half of proceeds from the sales will go to the Alzheimer's Association.
