“There’s a thief out there. And it’s robbing people’s memories. It’s robbing their ability to talk. It’s robbing their ability to eat, walk, get dressed, shower, or recognize their loved ones. It’s robbing people of their ability to be humans. It’s called Alzheimer’s, and it’s a real mother [censored] and we’ve got to do something about it… And we’ve got to do something now!” -Seth Rogan
We here at Vista Gardens love the way Seth Rogan & Hilarity For Charity are trying to get the “young folks” & celebrities involved on spreading the word of this terrible disease!
For far too long, Alzheimer’s has been wrongly categorized as “an old person’s disease” and it’s time for a change. With the rapid rate at which the disease is growing, it’s time to get the younger folks, who will be the older folks before too long, involved.
After being actively involved in the Alzheimer’s community for the past several years, Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller (along with some amazing friends) created Hilarity for Charity: an awesome, one-of-a-kind, and most importantly, hilarious event to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s among a younger generation.
Seth and Lauren recently established the Hilarity for Charity Fund as part of the National Alzheimer’s Association, through which monies raised will be directed to help families struggling with Alzheimer’s care, increase support groups nationwide, and fund cutting edge research.
On April 25, 2013, Hilarity for Charity once again entertained the masses at an exceptional variety show in the heart of Hollywood and raised over $500,000!
