Dancing to Find a Cure for Alzheimer’s

by: Smith and Howard Wealth Management

Each member of the Smith and Howard Wealth Management team participates in our firm-wide community service projects, but we also each have personal passions for certain charitable causes. For Lisa Curles, Senior Client Service Specialist, that passion includes finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. She has attended an event in support of our client, Dr. Lisa Hasty, for the past few years.

Lisa Curles, 2019 Dancing Stars of Atlanta

This year, Lisa is taking a leap (or should we say a cha-cha?) into an unknown world and becoming an active participant in the Alzheimer’s Association’s annual Dancing Stars of Atlanta one-night ballroom dancing competition. Having never been trained in ballroom dancing, Lisa has already begun to prepare for the May 2019 competition! She has been taking classes and is working with other dancers to learn ballroom dancing techniques! Her ultimate goal is to use the event to raise a meaningful sum of money to fund research to cure this crippling, deadly disease.

All funds raised support Alzheimer’s research and the programs and services provided to those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and their families. Please visit the Dancing Stars of Atlanta web site here to learn more about Lisa’s passion for this cause and how to donate. Thank you!
