Extremely Focused

Team-X-Treme, a group of young professionals who volunteer with the Orange County chapter of the Alzheimer's Assn., sponsored its fifth annual Casino Night at the home of John and Donna Crean of Santa Ana Heights.

Besides trying their luck at gaming tables, guests had their palms read, cruised a silent auction and dined on fare provided by Outback Steakhouse.

Money raised at last weekend's event will go toward the association's Helpline outreach program, which assists families of patients with Alzheimer's disease.

"Team-X-Treme allows our generation to make a difference in the lives of older adults," said support group founder Jacqueline DuPont. Amy Daugherty and Marni Luther were event co-chairwomen. -- *
