Jerry’s ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a locally owned and operated Collision Repair Center located in Mankato Minnesota, announced today it had donated $4,700 to the Alzheimer’s Association.
The donation is the result of a summer long partnership between Jerry’s ABRA and the Mankato MoonDog’s Summer Collegiate baseball team. Each time a MoonDog’s player scored a home run, Jerry’s ABRA made a donation of one hundred dollars to the Alzheimer’s Association.
The MoonDog’s hit 47 home runs this season, 21 of those were hit at home during the 2019 season, resulting in the $4,700 donation. The contribution will be used to fund research efforts to end Alzheimer’s and Dementia for those living with the disease.
“We are so grateful for the ongoing support Jerry’s ABRA Auto Body & Glass and the Mankato MoonDog’s have shown us,” said Debbie Eddy, community engagement senior manager, Alzheimer’s Association. “Their contribution will make a difference in the lives of many local families impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia.”
“The Mankato MoonDog’s are proud to partner with and support community driven initiatives like Jerry’s ABRA Auto Body & Glass support of Alzheimer’s research, said Justin White, Mankato Moon Dogs baseball club interim general manager. “We thank Jerry’s for their continued involvement in Alzheimer’s research and the Mankato MoonDog’s, we look forward to 2020!
Jerry’s ABRA Chief Financial Officer, Geralynn Kottschade, said the company is happy to support such a wonderful cause. “The Alzheimer’s Association is leading the way in finding a cure and I truly hope in my lifetime I am able to meet the first survivor.”
