VERONA (WKOW) -- A local woman is raising money for Alzheimer's research in honor of her dad, who passed away earlier this year. She hopes to help other families fighting the disease.

Caroline Olson's father Minh was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2013. She talked about his battle on Wake Up Wisconsin Thursday.

Caroline is once again organizing a Market Day in Verona to raise money for the Wisconsin Alzheimer's Institute. It's Saturday, September 24 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Harriet Park in Verona (151 Mary Lou Street). 

The event will feature live music, food and a raffle. It's free to get in. People can buy jewelry, clothing, antiques, art, handmade goods, makeup and skin care products. Ten-percent of the proceeds will go toward research for Alzheimer's disease.
