Four Oaks Country Club
Dracut, MA

The DKJ Foundation has held a charity golf tournament every summer since its inception, as well as other fundraisers throughout the year. All of the proceeds from these events go to three nonprofits: Sanborn Place & Home Care of Reading, Cure Alzheimer's Fund and to fund a scholarship at Reading Memorial High School for a student pursuing a career in the health care profession. The 13th annual golf tournament, held on Aug. 19 at Four Oaks Country Club in Dracut, Mass., attracted 123 golfers, 15 volunteers and an additional 27 people for dinner, who collectively raised more than $20,000.

In 1994, David K. Johnson was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at age 59; he died 10 years later. His wife and primary caregiver, Susan, passed away from a heart attack in 1999, just five years into David’s struggle with the disease. The responsibility then fell on their children—Gregg, Bruce and Laurel—to care for their father.

“We were fortunate to find wonderful care for our dad at Peter Sanborn Place—a non-profit residence and home care provider in our hometown of Reading, Mass.,” says Gregg Johnson.
