 FUND-RAISER HOSTED BY RAYMOND BURR
 NETS $7,500 FOR THE ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION
 DENVER, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- More than $7,500 was raised for the Alzheimer's Association Metro Denver Chapter at a fund-raising event hosted by actor Raymond Burr, best known for his role as television's Perry Mason.
 The special evening of wine tasting, violin and piano music, and supper by the bite, took place at Cliff Young's Restaurant on June 17, 1992 and was dedicated to the memory of Cliff Young Sr., who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
 The event was sponsored by Cliff Young's Restaurant and Health Care Group's ActivCare(R) Program, which operates two Alzheimer's care programs in Colorado. Cliff Young Jr., owner of Cliff Young's Restaurant, introduced his private wine label at the event and gave each guest a complimentary bottle of wine.
 California-based Health Care Group, recently brought ActivCare to Colorado. The new residential Alzheimer's care program is available in Denver and Colorado Springs at the Cherry Creek and Cheyenne Mountain Nursing Centers respectively.
 "We are extremely pleased that we can offer a resource for Alzheimer's residents in Colorado," said Major Chance, president of Health Care Group, speaking about the company's Colorado programs. "There are so many individuals and families who struggle with this terrible disease, and we are glad to have the opportunity to assist in fund raising efforts for the local Alzheimer's Association, and particularly to honor Cliff Young Sr. and recognize Cliff Young Jr. for his long-standing commitment to the Denver community."
 In addition to his contributions to the Alzheimer's Association, Cliff Young Jr. is active in many charitable organizations including the Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Colorado School of Art.
 Alzheimer's disease is a progressive, degenerative disease that attacks the brain and results in impaired memory, thinking and behavior, eventually rendering its victims totally incapable of caring for themselves. It affects an estimated 4 million American adults and is the most common form of dementia.
