The second annual Rick Sharp Classic (a reception, auction and golf tournament) has raised more than the record half-million dollars it brought in last year. Established in memory of Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Board Member Sherry Sharp’s husband, Rick, who lost his life to Alzheimer’s in 2014, this year’s classic was held on June 12 and 13 at the Independence Golf Club in Midlothian, Virginia. More than 350 people came out to support the uplifting and inspiring event. Sherry Sharp, along with Rick’s former colleagues and friends, used the occasion to communicate the urgent need to find a cure.
The event benefited from a matching gift of $300,000 from a generous donor, as well as support from other individuals and corporations, including the presenting sponsor CarMax, co-founded by Rick Sharp in 1993.
