Roxy's Spotlight Show an Alzheimer's benefit

Performers to urge donations for Pat Summit Foundation

The Saturday Night Spotlight Show at the Roxy Theater will join in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease with the Pat Summit Foundation with a special “We Back Pat” performance starting at 6 p.m. Saturday.

September is World Alzheimer’s Awareness month. Performers of all ages will entertain on stage to encourage donations and tips. They will include Craig W. Morgan, a singer/songwriter/guitarist and mentor for spotlight artists. Silent auction items have been provided by local health care groups and community businesses. Staff from Magnolia Gardens Assisted Living Center will be on hand with literature and support information on Alzheimer’s.

Summitt was the head coach of the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteer basketball team and is now “head coach emeritus.” At the helm for 38 seasons, she is the all-time winningest coach in NCAA history for men’s and women’s teams.

After she was found to have Alzheimer’s in August 2011, she resigned as the head coach and began battling the disease.

The foundation, which progressively and dynamically approaches awareness, research, and resources for Alzheimer’s, has endorsed the Spotlight event and will be providing a video for the program and its tax ID number for contributions.

The Roxy Theater is at 220 W. Okmulgee. Admission is $5 except for children younger than 12, who will get in free.

Information: Michael Anthamatten, (918) 616-5003.
