On behalf of the Alzheimer Society and the planning committee, we would like to thank all who participated in the third annual Making Sweet Memories Gala sponsored by MNP on Feb. 2.

Money raised is for much-needed programs, services and research.

Over $20,000 net was raised, as well as the roof!

The celebrity waiters managed to double the funny money donations from last year and treated our guests to an evening memories are made of.

To our media for carrying the story, you are exceptional.

Many thanks to our donors and sponsors, committee members, volunteers, celebrity waiters, entertainers, and dinner guests — you are appreciated and valuable members of the dementia care network!

Here is to a world without Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia.

Here is to having fun and helping others!
