In an effort to raise awareness of its programs, the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation is hosting a free food tasting event Thursday.
“A Taste of the Town” allows participants to sample food from various North Hempstead restaurants. More than 20 restaurants are taking part, representing several different types of cuisine, including Continental, Mediterranean, Italian, Latin and Japanese. In addition, Bottles Wines and Spirits in Port Washington will provide a complementary wine tasting.
The event is designed to help spread the word about LIAF’s programs and services for families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of dementia, as well as its Brain Fitness program for individuals who wish to optimize cognitive functioning.
“We hope that our guests will enjoy the delicious food available and also help spread LIAF’s message that there is still much ‘life worth living’ after an Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis,” said Alana Rosenstein, LIAF’s director of early stage programs.
The event will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. at the foundation, 5 Channel Dr., Port Washington. While the event is free, reservations are required. For more information or to make a reservation, call 516-767-6856.
