( 15 August 2013 / ) - For bestselling author Tess Gerritsen, creator of the Rizzoli & Isles series, raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s is personal.

Nearly 400 donors gave almost $28,000 during the online campaign, and Gerritsen personally contributed $25,000 in matching funds. Two donor-fans also won the opportunity to name characters in Gerritsen’s upcoming “Rizzoli & Isles” novel, set for release in 2014. (Source: )
