Bond roasted at Alzheimer's fundraiser

Senator Kit Bond was in Columbia Saturday evening getting roasted by his good friends to help the Alzheimer TMs Association.

The Mid-Missouri Alzheimer TMs Association helps support some of the 110,000 Missourians with Alzheimer TMs disease. The association already raised about $80,000 before their benefit roast even began.

This is the 7th Mid-Missouri Alzheimer TMs Association roast.

"Since Ronald Reagan announced that he had Alzheimer TMs, we began to focus at national attention at Alzheimer TMs needs, Missouri Senator Kit Bond said. Tonight is a opportunity to raise money for the Boone County Alzheimer TMs group, to help with care givers and to help with research that might enable future generations not to be burdened with Alzheimer TMs, and what it does to a wonderful human being."

The Alzheimer TMs Association provides more than $220 million a year to fight Alzheimer TMs disease.
