Alzheimer’s Association Miami Valley Chapter announces Chair of its upcoming event

DAYTON — The Alzheimer’s Association Miami Valley Chapter has tapped a local banker to lead its upcoming Reason to Hope event.

Jennifer Loveless, a private banker with Civista Bank, has been named chair of Reason to Hope, a community breakfast designed to educate the community about the Alzheimer’s Association while raising funds to support dementia research, programs and services.

Loveless is a member of the board of directors for the Miami Valley Alzheimer’s Association. A banker for 18 years, Loveless also volunteers by providing in-classroom economics education to third grade students in the Dayton community.

“I consider it an honor to Chair the 2020 Reason to Hope breakfast. Those affected by Alzheimer’s disease deserve a voice. Reason to Hope resonates that voice by delivering a powerful message that educates, inspires and motivates a community to take action. As a caregiver, I know firsthand how valuable the Alzheimer’s Association has been for me and my husband, John,” Loveless said.

Reason to Hope will be held at 8 a.m. on Friday, March 6. For more information about the event, email
