2nd Annual Reason to Hope Fundraising Breakfast
April 23, 2014
This business event is an opportunity for community organizations and leaders to demonstrate their commitment to advancing Alzheimer's research and sustaining critical Association programs and services. In 2013, during its first year, The Reason to Hope event played a critical role in our ability to meet the growing demands of Alzheimer's. Just as in 2013, the Reason to Hope Breakfast will take place at the Ted Constant Center in Norfolk. More information to come!

1st Annual Reason to Hope Fundraising Breakfast - 2013's Inaugural Event
On Wednesday, April 24, 2013, over 170 people gathered at the Ted Constant Convecation Center in Norfolk to demonstrate their commitment to advancing Alzheimer's research and sustaining critical Association programs and services. Old Dominion University's President John Broderick shared his personal story and commitment to eradicating this awful disease and thanked the Alzheimer's Association for being on the forefront of groundbreaking research and support to families having to navigate the daily challenges Alzheimer's brings. Local champions, Betty Rose Facer, an ODU professor and our Board Chair, David Rabon Stephens, shared their reasons to hope by invoking strong emotion from the crowd about being caregivers.
The Reason to Hope event was a vital asset in boosting our ability to meet the growing demands of Alzheimer's here in Hampton Roads in 2013. We hope you'll join us this year.
Thank you, Sponsors!
