Rockin’ Out for Alzheimers

Araya Jackson

The Rockin’ Out for Alzheimers fundraiser was developed three years ago by the co-chairman of the Rockin’ Out committee, Darron Burnette, after he watched his mother lose her battle to Alzheimers. Burnette, along with a committee of 12 community volunteers, continue to raise funds for a disease that impacts over five million people.

The concert will be at the Performing Arts Center of Georgia Southern University on Saturday, January 24th at 7:00 p.m. The Journey Tribute Band will be back in Statesboro once again replicating the look and feel of the originals 80’s rock band. Proceeds of the concert will go to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of Coastal Georgia.
