Memories in the Making
Memories In The Making Art and Wine Auction
On Friday, March 13, 2015, Memories will be made! The Alzheimer's Association will be hosting the 12th Annual Memories in the Making Art and Wine Auction at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. Our Master of Ceremonies will be Dennis O’Donnell from KPIX CBS. A wine and heavy hors d'oeuvres reception will whet our guest’s appetite while they will be entertained by a live jazz ensemble. Silent auction volunteers will encourage guests to peruse the many prizes and experiences waiting to be bid on. This year’s fundraising goal is $195,000.
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, vacation destinations around the world and rare bottles of wine just to name a few.
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 registration is closed. Tickets are available at the door.
