Approximately 300 guests attended the Alzheimer’s Association, Northwest Ohio Chapter’s fourth annual spring gala on March 28. The Great Gatsby/Roaring Twenties event was held at The Pinnacle in Maumee and presented by Paramount, the lead sponsor of the gala since its inception.
Guests were welcomed by vintage cars upon arrival, received souvenir photos from Keepsake Portraits, admired decorations by Mager Designs, enjoyed a seated dinner, bid on silent auction items, danced to the big band music by Swingmania, and indulged on desserts from Cupcakes by Ashley. Other entertainment included gambling tables for fun, a 1920’s best dressed contest, a grand prize raffle, and a cardboard car race across the dance floor!
Emcee Dave Holmes from 13abc and guest speakers Jack Randolph, President of Paramount, and Alex Catchings, Board Member and caregiver, expressed the vital role the Chapter plays in Northwest Ohio, the importance of continued support for research, and the need to continue offering respite care, supportive programs, and education to the families and caregivers in our area who face the devastating symptoms of memory loss disorders each day.
“Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias continues to rise and the need to support the programs our Chapter offers also continues to grow. We are so grateful to those who attended this event and generously supported our organization. Events like this help support the over 38,000 individuals in Northwest Ohio who are living with Alzheimer’s disease as well as their families and caregivers,” said Beth Wong, gala manager.
The Chapter would like to extend a special thank you to Patty Gelb, the honorary chair of the event for her hard work and leadership, as well as all of the committee members and volunteers. In addition, the Chapter is humbly grateful to all of the sponsors and donors who made the evening possible.
