Memories in the Making
Memories In The Making Art and Wine Auction
On Friday, March 7, 2014, Memories will be made! The Alzheimer's Association will be hosting the 11th Annual Memories in the Making Art and Wine Auction at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. Our Master of Ceremonies will again be Christina Loren from NBC News. Over 350 guests are expected to attend and help us reach our fundraising goal of $180,000. Guests will mingle and enjoy a wine and heavy hors d'oeuvres reception while being entertained by a live jazz ensemble. Silent auction volunteers will encourage guests to peruse the many prizes and expereinces waiting to be bid on.
During the live auction part of the evening guests are in for a treat. We will have a live musical performance from a caregiver and someone very connected to the Association inspiring us during our fund a need portion of the evening.
The highlight of our auction is always the art created by participants of the Memories in the Making art therapy program. This year's art work is exceptionally beautiful and will look lovely in anyone's home. Our live auction prizes also promise unique experiences and exclusive, rare items.
Memories in the Making is a unique program of creative expression for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Through art and the creative process, these individuals speak to us, offering an essence of themselves. The art they produce is a tangible means of expression which speaks to their families, their professional caregivers and to the public.
Online ticket sales are now closed but you can still get tickets at the event!
