Based on the guidance from local public health agencies regarding COVID-19, the Alzheimer’s Association – Western Carolina Chapter’s Charlotte Memory Gala originally scheduled for Saturday, May 16 has been rescheduled for Saturday, August 29. It will still take place at The Westin Charlotte.
Here’s what the Alzheimer’s Association says about the event:
Alzheimer’s compels us to appreciate the facts that not only are our memories guaranteed but to re-evaluate our ability to treasure accomplishments and savor life’s simple pleasures. The creation of the Memory Gala stems from these ideas and is a powerful way to raise funds and awareness for the almost 6 million Americans whose memories are being stolen from them by this disease.
More than 400 influential community and business leaders are expected to attend the gala, which celebrates the lives of loved ones with dementia and raises funds to underwrite the Association’s support, education, advocacy, and research efforts. Marnie Schneider will be honored with the 2020 Award of Excellence for the voice she and her family are giving to Alzheimer’s disease. Schneider is the caregiver for her mother – Susan Tose Spencer – who is living with Alzheimer’s and is the former General Manager of the Philadelphia Eagles. Schneider, along with her mom, is also the author of Football Freddie and Fumble the Dog: GameDay in the USA children’s book series.
Co-chaired by Cari and Tom Berger, this elegant affair includes a welcoming reception and silent auction, wine pull, seated dinner, live auction, dancing, and musical entertainment provided by Kingdaddy.The deadline to RSVP is Aug. 14, 2020.
