15th Anniversary Bankers Life Forget Me Not Days® – A blooming success!

On June 2-3 and 9-10, 2017, Bankers Life associates and Illinois Chapter volunteers took to the streets and local Jewel Osco stores for the 15th Annual Bankers Life Forget Me Not Days®. The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association by gifting donors with Forget Me Not flower seeds to plant in honor of the more than five million Americans living with Alzheimer’s today. Since the event’s inception in 2003, Bankers Life has raised more than $5 million dollars for Alzheimer’s care, support and research programs through collection day efforts and corporate donations. This year’s fundraiser helped to raise $431,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association nationwide, providing crucial services to individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias.

This year, associates from seven local Bankers Life branch offices and Illinois Chapter volunteers from across the state raised more than $31,000 in support of the Alzheimer’s Association. In summarizing the company’s efforts toward this creative campaign, Bankers Life President Scott Goldberg stated, Every year, an overwhelming number of Bankers Life associates, agents and volunteers, dedicate their time to collect donations and increase public awareness of Alzheimer’s disease in their communities. The growth of Forget Me Not Days over the last 15 years demonstrates our ongoing commitment and dedication to the Alzheimer’s Association and its mission to advance research and provide patient and caregiver support. Mr. Goldberg is a member of the Illinois Chapter’s Advisory Board and has helped serve the Association through the Bankers Life Forget Me Not Days campaign for many years.

The Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter is so grateful for the continued support of Bankers Life! Because of its generosity, we can continue to plant the seeds of hope and work toward our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter would like to congratulate our highest fundraising volunteer team—the employees of Payline Data! Payline Data is a mobile credit card processing company that enables their clients to creatively simplify their payments. We are sincerely grateful for their support and participation.
