Find-M’ Friends, Inc. trains bloodhounds for search and rescue, then donates the dogs to law enforcement agencies throughout the country.  The Citrus County-based nonprofit also manufactures and distributes Out of Harm’s Way Scent Kits that are used to facilitate quicker and more productive searches for individuals who have wandered and become lost.  

“We are thrilled that Find-M’ Friends has joined us to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Family Organization,” states Coping with Dementia LLC President Debbie Selsavage.  “Their work has been vital in making Citrus a dementia friendly county, and their presence will add an important educational aspect to our charity screenings of this popular movie.”

Tickets for the October 13th 2 and 6 p.m. screenings of “Mrs. Doubtfire” are now on sale for $10 per seat at the Valerie Theatre web site.  All proceeds will go to the Alzheimer’s Family Organization, a nonprofit that supports caregivers for individuals living with dementia in west-central Florida counties, including Citrus County.     

Out of Harm’s Way Scent Kits will be available at the Valerie, and each screening of “Mrs. Doubtfire” will be followed by an audience Q&A hosted by AFO Executive Director Kathleen Winters, and AFO Board President Debbie Selsavage.
