TYLER (KYTX) - Mark Kennedy Shriver, nephew of the late John F. Kennedy, visits Tyler Monday for the Alzheimer's Alliance of Smith County annual luncheon.

The event is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Willow Brook Country Club.

The focus of the "Butterfly Hope Luncheon" is Alzheimer's: A Journey of Love, Care and Hope.

Shriver will share insights into his famous family's journey and his personal struggles with his father's disease.

Shriver's father, Sargent Shriver, suffered from Alzheimer's. Mark has authored a tribute to his father entitled, A Good Man, Rediscovering My Father, Sargent Shriver.

Currently, Shriver is Senior Vice President leading Save the Children's U.S. programs and is also a
spirited advocate for Alzheimer's issues and awareness.

Tickets for the event went for $65 each and one-hundred percent of the proceeds will stay local to benefit program services provided by the Alzheimer's Alliance of Smith County, a non-profit organization.
