Morels & Memories – Mushroom Hunt & Alzheimer’s Fundraiser
The Morels and Memories Mushroom Hunt & Alzheimer’s Fundraiser was started in honor of my mother Heidi Vanderlinde, who was diagnosed with Younger Onset Alzheimer’s Disease, in 2011, at the age of 49. The fundraiser is now on it’s 4th year, raising almost $10k and counting towards fighting Alzheimer’s disease.
100% of donations will be going to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund

Keep what you find!
*Please note, as Morel’s are not cultivatable, there are no guarantees you will find any
*Please dress for the woods, there are things like sharp branches, poison ivy, and wood ticks in the woods so make sure you dress accordingly
Will also have finger food, alcoholic, and non-alcoholic beverages available as part of your ticket purchase
