5th Annual Alzheimer’s  Raffle Raised $3700

In an effort to give back, Spirits on Bourbon  hosted a raffle at Turtle Bay’s , Spirits sister bar on Decatur Street. This is the 5th Annual Turtle Bay Raffle organized by Mardi Johnson as part of the Walk to End Alzheimers.   
The fund raiser consisted of individual raffles every hour, on the hour. Great prizes were donated from friends and local business, as well as some national organizations.  
“Mardi does an incredible job getting donations and selling the raffle tickets. She outdoes herself each year! We feel lucky to work with her on this,” said Turtle Bays Brad Bohannan
The event continues to grow and it’s 5th year was no exception. This year the event raised $3,700 for the charity bringing a five year total to over $13,000.    
“Alzheimer’s has effected me personally and I look forward to one day ending Alzheimer’s. I will continue to do my part,” Steve Smith. 
“Thanks to everyone who helped in any way with our Alzheimers event. I’m amazed at the outpouring of love! The day flew by because of the laughter and caring from all of the Turtle Bay community. It really does take a village and we have a great one. See ya next year!” added Johnson.
