O'Fallon, Mo. (PRWEB) September 1, 2010
Assisted Living at the Meadowlands is excited to announce a series of fundraising events featuring O’Neal Hampton, a contestant from the most recent season of The Biggest Loser Couples that finished airing on NBC in May.
Three events featuring O’Neal will be held at the community during the weekend of Sept. 11-12. These events are part of fundraising efforts for the St. Charles County Memory Walk on Sept. 18.
O’Neal and his daughter Sunshine appeared on the show. Fans followed O’Neal’s progress throughout 15 weeks on the show that chronicled his weight loss of 124 pounds.
O’Neal and family hold a special connection to this cause. His mother-in-law Alice died from Alzheimer’s disease two years ago.
Tickets prices range from $25-$75 and may be purchased online at http://www.seatyourself.biz/meadowlands. For a description of the events and a link to purchasing tickets, please visit http://www.meadowlandsassistedliving.com/news.
Assisted Living at the Meadowlands was the first of its kind in O’Fallon to offer a memory care neighborhood for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The community works closely with the Alzheimer’s Association to structure appropriate memory care programs.
The intimate community offers seniors amenities such as all day, restaurant-style dining, 24-hour nursing care and nursing care services in a home-like setting.
The community is the brainchild of Kevin Kast and Stephanie Harris, Esq., CEO of Arrow Senior Living Management. Kast is a managing member of New Covenant Health Care, LLC, an investment group consisting of prominent local community members inspired to create innovative changes in senior living. Members include Shawn Saale, Dr. Carlos Seuc, Grace Harmon and Bob Wamhoff, among others.
All events will be held at the community, located at 135 Meadowlands Estates Lane in O’Fallon, Mo., across from the T.R. Hughes Ballpark.
