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

MINNEAPOLIS–(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

company is pleased to once again support such a wonderful cause. “The
Alzheimer’s Association is an incredible organization taking care of
