There are a number of ways to "go purple" such as hosting a give back night, offering a signature purple cocktail, decorating storefronts, and helping to spread the word about the Fairfield County Walk to End Alzheimer's on September 16th at Calf Pasture beach.
 
Paint the Town Purple is truly about bringing Alzheimer's Awareness to the community. I would love to give a huge thank you to all of our volunteers who helped launch this initiative,” Walk Manager, Tori Vigorito.
 
The goal of “Paint the Town Purple” is to increase awareness about Alzheimer's disease and the free programs and services offered by the Alzheimer's Association.
