Seventeenth Annual AWARE Luncheon

Wednesday, November 16, 2016
River Oaks Country Club
11:30 AM

The Alzheimer’s Women’s Auxiliary for Resources & Education was founded in 2000 as a friend-raising auxiliary by families and friends who have been touched by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. AWARE has helped to champion the cause by providing volunteer leadership and support to the Alzheimer’s Association Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter. Over the past fifteen years, Houston AWARE has raised more than $3 million through the annual Luncheon.

For the Seventeenth Annual AWARE Luncheon we are pleased to welcome Kim Campbell, wife of singer Glen Campbell, as this year’s speaker.

In 2011, Glen was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and Kim stood by her husband through a tumultuous sea of adversity. She and her husband courageously decided to share his battle with the disease by inviting filmmakers James Keach and Trevor Albert to document Glen's Goodbye Tour. She was by his side every step of the way for what turned out to be an extensive, 151 show world tour culminating in the documentary, Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.

In 2013, Kim and Glen made the move to Nashville, Tennessee. Her time now revolves around spending time with Glen at his memory support community and raising awareness for Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers.

We know there is no treatment or cure for Alzheimer's disease and it affects more than 140,000 families in Southeast Texas.  Alzheimer’s disease has touched so many of our friends and their families.  No one is immune from its impact.  The challenges can be daunting, not only for the person with Alzheimer’s, but also for their loved ones and caregivers. 

Awareness, education and research are the only ways we can eradicate Alzheimer’s. 

Your donations matter in making the vision of a world without Alzheimer’s a reality. With your support, the Houston & Southeast Texas Chapter is able to provide services throughout 37 county service areas to thousands of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Most importantly, we are able to be here for you and your family when you need help.

Please join us in supporting the fight against this crippling epidemic. By sponsoring the AWARE luncheon, you provide critical education, outreach and services for local families living with dementia, as well as fund vital research.

As an event sponsor, you will receive a premium table for ten guests, in addition to acknowledgment in all print materials.  Most importantly, your sponsorship will bring us one step closer to achieving our vision: a world without Alzheimer’s.

To take advantage of this opportunity, please contact Alexis Eaton at 713-314-1331 or aeaton@alz.org.
