PUTNAM, CT –On November 21, 2009, Ted Reynolds with guests Donna LaHaie, David LaChance and Kathy Radel will perform A Musical Journey Through Musical Movies at the Hyde School in Woodstock to benefit The Bob Reynolds Memorial Fund at Day Kimball HomeMakers.

Ted Reynolds created the Bob Reynolds Memorial Fund in memory of his father who succumbed to Alzheimer’s disease in 2003. During his father’s struggle, his mother, Mildred, spent countless hours caring for her husband. When Ted Reynolds became a caregiver for a friend, Day Kimball HomeMakers was able to provide him with caregiver relief services and the personal care assistance that his friend needed. The Fund will be used to provide relief for caregivers of those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

“November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month,” said Reynolds. “This performance is a great way to remember my father and support Day Kimball HomeMakers for the important services they provide in Northeast Connecticut.”

The concert also includes a 12-piece orchestra, led by Reynolds, with LaHaie, LaChance and Radel performing hits from musical movies such as Westside Story, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, The Sound of Music and more. The concert will last approximately two hours with Gary Osbrey of WINY as the master of ceremonies.

“In its first year, the Bob Reynolds memorial fund has given much needed support to caregivers in this community and their loved ones with Alzheimer’s and or Dementia,” said Susan Esons, Director of Day Kimball HomeMakers. “We are truly grateful to Ted Reynolds for all of his efforts in making these services available.”

The event begins at 8:00 p.m. and tickets are $30 per person. For more information or to purchase tickets call the Day Kimball Development at (860) 928-7141.
