ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - September has been declared Alzheimer's Awareness Month in Marshall County. Cities across the county have spent their time gearing up for Alzheimer's Services' biggest fundraising event of the year.

A Night to Remember kicks off with a walk which begins at the Albertville Chamber of Commerce, and ends at Albertville High School where the rest of the event takes place.

There will be a balloon release in which families can donate $5 to have a balloon dedicated to the memory of their loved one.

Following walk and the balloon release, high school students from marching bands across Marshall County will perform their halftime shows, showing their support, and entertaining the crowd.

Karen Hill, Chairman of the Board of Alzheimer's Services of Marshall County says even if you don't have a team, show up anyway.

"If you're on a team or not, if it's last minute or not, just come out and be with us and walk with us, and support us."

A Night to Remember begins Thursday September 17th, at 6:00 p.m. It costs $5 at the gate to enter.

All of the money raised at A Night to Remember will go directly to the Alzheimer's Services of Marshall County.  The funds will help pay for several programs and support groups that serve the community.
