Laona M. Kitchen Foundation
The Laona M. Kitchen Foundation was founded to honor mother, grandmother, and great grandmother Laona Kitchen, who battled Alzheimer's disease. The foundation works to assist families who are caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's and other dementias.
The LMK Foundation accomplishes its goal three ways: by providing funds for short-term respite care to relieve caregivers from the demands of caring for one with Alzheimer's or dementia; by offering education and support for those seeking to use VA death pension benefits; and by educating the community on how to best cope with these irreversible and deadly diseases.
The foundation raises funds to support these endeavors through grants, generous donations and the annual Casino Night and Golf Tournament. You can support this cause by clicking the donate button above, or by attending our two Annual Events (Casino and Golf). Your donation or participation will go a long way in supporting those who care for loved ones afflicted with these diseases.
