Janet Anthos, 58, store manager for fashion retailer J. McLaughlin in Wellesley, Massachusetts, has firsthand experience with Alzheimer’s disease, having lived with her mother-in-law, who had it.
In an effort to raise money for Alzheimer’s research, Janet approached Cure Alzheimer’s Fund with an idea—an afternoon shopping spree with light refreshments to support Alzheimer’s research. In June, a dozen Massachusetts J. McLaughlin stores, plus two New York City stores, donated 15 percent of their “Sip ’n Shop” sales to research, raising awareness for Alzheimer’s disease among their clientele.
“We are so grateful to J. McLaughlin for its support,” says Sally Rosenfield, Senior Vice President at Cure Alzheimer’s Fund who attended several of the store events, along with seven of her CureAlz colleagues.
