The Traverse City Bankers Life and Casualty Company branch raised $5,323.25 for the Alzheimer's Association through its "Forget Me Not Days" street corner fundraiser.

Bankers employees, agents and their family members collected at Walmart locations in Traverse City and Cadillac and donors were thanked with packets of forget-me-not flower seeds. Volunteers hope that the seeds will be planted in honor of the estimated 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer's disease.


The Cadillac Area Women's Giving Circle, a component fund of the Cadillac Area Community Foundation, donated $2,000 to Care Net of Cadillac.

Care Net will use the funds to purchase cribs and mattresses for clients who are served through its Options Pregnancy Resource Center and Fatherhood Support Services, which provide parenting classes and pregnancy support for mothers and fathers.
