#PurpleOutTN Plans 2024

President Ronald Reagan first declared November as Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month in 1983, long before he shared his own Alzheimer's diagnosis.


Friday, Nov. 3: Purple Out Shirt Day! This is the day for you and your crew to suit up in the new Purple Out 2023 T-shirts. Wear PURPLE to raise awareness about the state’s NEW Silver Alert Law passed to help Bring Home Tennesseans safely! Make the Volunteer State purple and let's all show our support for families facing Alzheimer's disease. #PurpleOutTN 


Thank You, Court Clerks

Because Alzheimer’s disease and dementia impact so many people, the Board of Directors for the State Court Clerks Association of Tennessee voted to adopt and support Alzheimer’s Tennessee, a Tennessee-based 501c3 not-for-profit organization that provides support services, promotes brain health through education, and champions research for better prevention and treatment strategies.

To WIN and be crowned Purple Out King or Queen Clerk: 

Before Nov. 1: Clerks are invited to collect checks payable to Alzheimer’s Tennessee and mail to Attn: Purple Out Tennessee, 5801 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37919 and please include the clerk's full name, division (ie Clerk and Master, Circuit Court Clerk) and county name.

Monday, Nov. 6: Clerks at the COAT Conference can turn in any funds collected with checks made payable to Alzheimer's Tennessee. 

100% of the proceeds will benefit Tennesseans. A check for the total collected so far will be presented to Alzheimer’s Tennessee at the state's COAT Conference in November. Thank you to the all the Clerks who participating in #PurpleOutTN #PurpleInTN plans for a November to Remember.


Please plan to share about your participation

Share your plans via email, social media #PurpleOutTN and with local media, including newspapers, radio and television partners who will invite your community to get involved. 

Spread the word in the following ways:

  • Purple Out Your Social Media.  Take pictures of yourself, co-workers, decorations... everything your doing to "Go Purple" and share them with the #PurpleOutDay hashtag.
  • Wear Purple. If you have an official "Purple Out Day" shirt, show your colors! If not,  wear anything purple. Get yourself a purple scarf, tie, ribbon or piece of jewelry and be part of the effort to Make Alzheimer's a Memory.
  • Ask local leaders to issue a Proclamation like this one: 2022_PurpleOutTennessee_AlzheimersTennessee_Proclamation.pdf
  • Decorate  your office, classroom or courthouse to raise awareness with everyone you see during Purple Out Tennessee. Decorate at home, too. A purple wreath on your door or purple decorations on your mailbox will show the world your support for those facing Alzheimer's disease.
  • Ask employees and the community to honor and memorialize loved ones by bringing in pictures of those who have lived with Alzheimer’s disease to create an Alzheimer’s Tennessee Tribute Wall.  You may find the following materials helpful to print, post and share:

Tribute Wall Poster

Tribute Wall Frame

Certificate of Dedication to present to a loved one or caregiver.

The following educational resources are also available at most Clerks' offices throughout the state: 

Those who want to truly champion this cause may find additional ways of raising funds, through coin cans, bake sales (or even bakeless bake sales), “Casual for a Cause” days, and other FUNdraisers.

If you'd like, you can also donate online.
