HEBRON | The volunteers who call themselves Charley's Glorious Angels will hold their second fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Association Sunday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Hebron Dairy Queen.

The restaurant, located on Frontage Road off Ind. 2 at the north end of town, has agreed to donate a portion of the sales to the association's effort to end Alzheimer's disease. The "angels" are relatives and friends of Charles Smith, who died of the disease.

The angels will clean tables and serve customers while providing information about the debilitating disease that affects as many as one in three people and is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

Those who wish to make an additional donation or to support Charley's Glorious Angels in their participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer's at Hidden Lake Park in Merrillville in September can do so by going to the Alz.org Web site.

Click on the state and pick the Merrillville walk and go to the angels team to pledge your support. The team is headed by Terri Ensign, wife of Hebron Council President Don Ensign, and they are marching for several family members and friends who have suffered the disease.
