Auburn Health Care to hold Backyard Fest and Fish Fry

By Chris Cooper -

On Sept. 11, 2015, starting at 5 p.m. Auburn Health Care will be having its first annual Backyard Fest and Fish Fry to help raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Formed in 1980, the Alzheimer’s Association advances research to end Alzheimer’s and dementia while enhancing care for those living with the disease.

According to Tiffany Hinton, Assistant Administrator for Auburn Health Care, fundraising is something she has been involved in for years while working in long-term care.

“This is something we at Auburn Health Care wanted to do to bring about awareness of this disease, as well as give back to the community, and market our facility,” said Hinton.

There will be many vendors at the event, as well as many activities. There will be a silent action with lots of great items donated; a baby-child pageant (newborn up to 10 years); a talent show (bring your best talents); a corn hole tournament; a bouncy house and slide for the kids, and of course a free fish fry for those who attend.

Winners in the baby-child pageant, talent show and corn hole tournament will receive either trophies or gift cards.

It is not too late to enter these events. If you are interested in entering one of the events, please contact Hinton at There will be a $10 entry fee for the pageant and corn hole tournament.

At the end of the evening, since it’s on Sept. 11, the night will be closed out with the Logan County ROTC and the sending off of sky lanterns to honor those who lost their lives during 9-11.

Auburn Health Care invites the public to come out and have fun, while supporting a good cause.
