The Memories in the Making Art Auction & Gala is an evening filled with entertainment, silent and live auction items, raffle fun, incredible food and an opportunity to donate to a wonderful organization.

Auction items include fabulous vacation packages; gift baskets from local vendors; and art from local artists and participants in the Memories in the Making® art program.

Memories in the Making Art Auction & Gala 2021

Our 2020 Memories in the Making Art Auction & Gala raised more than $238,000, helping bring joy to people living with Alzheimer's or other dementias.

Your gift celebrates the beauty of memories. Because of you, over 200 care communities across Oregon and Southwest Washington are trained in the Memories in the Making® art program*.
