Jerry's ABRA Auto Body & Glass of Mankato Donates $4,900 to the Alzheimer's Association

MINNEAPOLIS - December 02, 2016 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Jerry’s ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a locally owned and operated franchise in Mankato, Minnesota, announced today it had donated $4,900 to the Alzheimer’s Association.

The donation is the result of a summer long partnership between Jerry’s ABRA and the Mankato MoonDogs amateur baseball team. Each time the MoonDogs scored a home run at their home ballpark, Franklin Rogers Park (known as “The Frank”), Jerry’s ABRA made a one hundred dollar donation to the Alzheimer’s Association.

The MoonDogs hit 49 home runs at The Frank during the 2016 season, resulting in the $4,900 donation. The contribution will be used to fund research efforts to end Alzheimer’s and dementia and enhance care for those living with the disease.

“We are truly grateful for the long-standing and significant support Jerry’s ABRA Auto Body & Glass and the Mankato MoonDogs have shown us,” said Debbie Eddy, community engagement senior manager, Alzheimer’s Association. “Their contribution will make a difference in the lives of many local families impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia.”

Jerry’s ABRA Chief Financial Officer, Geralynn Kottschade, said the company is pleased to once again support such a wonderful cause. “The Alzheimer’s Association is an incredible organization taking care of many members of our community faced with a life changing diagnosis. We are honored to continue to support the mission to provide new treatments, preventions, and ultimately a cure for Alzheimer’s and other dementias.”
