PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month and the local Alzheimer’s Association chapter are holding fundraisers.

Like most events these days, “The Longest Day” is a virtual fundraiser for all the national chapters on June 20.

But on June 19, West Linn resident Lindsay Paxton is hosting a virtual wine tasting, “Solstice Sip” in honor of her close friend’s dad who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s about a year ago.

Paxton and Heidi Rowell, the director of programs for the Alzheimer’s Association – Oregon & SW Washington Chapter, joined AM Extra to share the details about the Solstice Sip.
