Some local residents are prepared to take a bath in a dunking booth to raise money for families affected by dementia.

Dunking for Dementia will raise money for The Veranda, a Gallatin-based ministry that provides activities for those living with dementia in order to offer family members free time.

For $5 a throw, those willing to volunteer can unseat Tribute Quartet pianist and vocalist Josh Singletary and his wife, Kahlie Singletary, director of Nashville Girls Hockey; Dusty Wells, director of sales for New Day Distribution; Kim Allen of All Things Custom in Goodlettsville; gospel artist Darlene Chapman; Rhonda Minton, director of alumni programs at Lipscomb University; or Stephanie Harville, executive director at Morningside of Gallatin.

Lunch and tours of The Veranda facility also are available. Lunch is $10.

The event is 10 a.m. Saturday, June 3, at The Veranda, 650 Nashville Pike in Gallatin.
