David K. Johnson Foundation
The David K. Johnson (DKJ) Foundation was delighted to be chosen by Aine’s Boutique of Reading as the recipient of proceeds raised at their recent fashion show held at Tanner Tavern in Woburn. Nearly $2,000 was raised and a fun night out was had by all. Pictured is Julie Centrella of Aine’s with Bruce and Gregg Johnson of the DKJ Foundation. Earlier this year the foundation raised over $29,000 at their 13th Annual Golf Tournament and 2nd Annual Stroll to Remember (a 5K walk along Lake Quannapowitt) with huge support from residents, retailers and various companies in Reading and the surrounding communities. All money raised by the DKJ Foundation will be donated to Sanborn Place, Home Care & Day Services, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund and the David and Susan Johnson Memorial Scholarship Fund which advances the foundation's mission to promote awareness and provide support for individuals and families affected by Alzheimer's disease.
