Approximately 300 people turned out for the Alzheimer’s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter’s third annual Spring Gala “An Affair to Remember” on April 20. This sold-out, elegant event was Kentucky Derby themed and held at the Heather Downs Country Club. The evening was led by emcee, Dave Holmes of 13abc, and included music by InSync DJ Services, dinner, a derby hat contest, a “horse” race, a caricature artist, a silent auction, a blackjack table, hand rolled cigars, mint juleps, and much more!
Holmes and other guest speakers also expressed the important role the Chapter plays in Northwest Ohio and the growth and importance of early diagnosis and the Early Stage programs.
More than $50,000 was raised to support the Chapter’s many programs and services. “We truly appreciate the immense generosity and support of all who attended and assisted with this year’s Gala,” said Salli Bollin, Executive Director. “With more than 38,000 people living with Alzheimer’s disease in Northwest Ohio, the need for education and support has never been greater. Events like the Gala help us meet this need.”
The Chapter would like extend a special thanks to the members of the planning committee and the support and contributions we received from all of our attendees, donors, and sponsors.
