Dining out with Locals Featuring Aimee Johnson

 Couldn't let the month end without featuring this extremely special person.

Meet Aimee Johnson, Executive Director, Alabama & Florida Panhandle | Alzheimer's Association
When asked about her favorite local restaurant, she said, 
"My favorite restaurant is Alloy Thai.  It is the best food in town and my son is the chef - Josh Haynes.  He says he is a great chef because I was an awful cook!!!!"
Aimee's role with the Alabama / Florida Alzheimer's Association is a very important one.  Although June is National Alzheimer's Awareness Month, Aimee makes this mission part of her life's work & continues the fight through community awareness.

Walk to End Alzheimer's - 9 across the state of Alabama
Held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide, the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease!
When you participate in Walk, your fundraising dollars fuel our mission, and your participation in the event helps to change the level of Alzheimer’s awareness in your community. The Alzheimer’s Association provides free, easy-to-use tools and staff support to help participants reach their fundraising goal. While there is no fee to register, we encourage participants to fund raise in order to contribute to the cause and raise awareness.
June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month 

June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month – a time to shine a purple light for the millions of people living with Alzheimer's. Especially during the month of June, we need your help by mobilizing friends, families, neighbors, co-workers and customers to help bring an end to Alzheimer's disease. 
The Birmingham Restaurant Raider is a community partner & will continue to use this platform solely to focus on local restaurants, festivals and other causes in the Birmingham area.
