Friday, August 19th at Fort Orange Brewing
On Friday, August 19, our community event took place at Fort Orange Brewing Co. in Albany, NY with nearly 100 in attendance. This event not only celebrated Stroke Across America, but also commemorated Michael’s return to his hometown of Albany. Michael graduated from The Albany Academies in 1984 and he was able to reunite with a handful of his classmates. Thank you so much to everyone at The Albany Academies for helping to make it such a great evening! In addition to reuniting with classmates, Michael also got to see his wife, Carolyn, for the first time since June 1 marking the longest they’ve been apart since they got married!
Another huge thank you goes out to Rockefeller Capital Management for their event sponsorship. We had a lively program with the American Heart Association as well as presentations from Julie Hart of The College of St. Rose’s Moving Message, Marjorie Rush- a carepartner, and Dr. Alexandra Paul– a neurosurgeon at Albany Medical College. Thank you so much to these folks for helping to make the night so educational and memorable!
