According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 50 million people worldwide have dementia, and it is estimated that around 5.8 million Americans aged 65 and older are living with Alzheimer’s dementia, with the number projected to rise to nearly 14 million by 2050.

As of now, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but ongoing research aims to find effective treatments and ultimately a cure, so Tennessee Memory Disorders Foundation is hosting the annual fundraising event at Orange Hat Brewing Co. located at 10246 Hardin Valley Road on Friday, August 18, from 6-9 p.m.

Entertainment will include live music by Knoxville’s own Chillbillies and axe throwing with 865Axe. WVLT’s Whitney Kent will be bring 2023 official I’m All Vol gear, plus a silent auction with baskets of prizes including tickets to UT’s first home game, Dollywood passes, Erik Ainge signed football, gift cards, UT gear and much more!.

Cost to attend the event is $20 per person over age 21 with under 21 attending at no charge. Tickets can be pre-purchased at Fall into Orange or at the event. All proceeds go to the foundation.

Overflow parking will be available at Ball Camp Baptist Church and a shuttle will run from the church to Orange Hat. It is recommended to bring a camp chair in case there is limited seating.
