Bernadette Stanis and The Belle catch-up back stage
Richmond, VA — Garrett Davis and his Forget Me Not Project set up shop in Richmond on Saturday with a major production centered around bringing awareness to Alzheimer’s.
The day long event started with the Forget Me not Prayer Breakfast with more than 500 in attendance at the Landmark Theater Grand Ballroom. During the breakfast several pastors were recognized for their Community efforts including Roscoe Cooper, Jr., Pastor Earl Brown of Pastor Tyrell Brown.
Following the breakfast was a Health Fair, which offered support, guidance and assistance to anyone dealing with Alzheimer’s in any capacity, from care givers to those diagnosed with the disease.
Wrapping up the day was the “Forget Me Not Play” featuring the debut performances of Calvin Richardson, Scott Savol and Bernadette Stanis (Thelma from Good Times). While the play addresses the very serious issue of Alzheimer’s, Davis also found a creative way to make the play funny and interactive with the audience. His character, Junior, keeps the funny in the play, along with a talented cast that superbly brings his words to life as they skillfully give clear examples on how Alzheimer’s can affect an individual and challenge families and marriages.
By the end of the play, members of the audience laughed, cried and were more educated about a leading cause of death among African-Americans.
Well done, Mr. Davis on a job well done and on your continuous drive and push to educate America about the many affects of Alzheimer’s.
