Alzheimer’s Care Supporters Gather Before Their Big Fundraiser
A collegial gathering of supporters for Alzheimer’s Community Care’s upcoming Seasons of Life luncheon.
“We always have a pre-event, but not always in such an elegant setting,” president and CEO Mary Barnes said at The Residences Mandarin Oriental Boca Raton, also a sponsor.
CBS-12 anchor Liz Quirantes will emcee “Summer Time” at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10 at St. Andrews Country Club. Michaela Page, a finalist on “The Voice,” will perform. The luncheon speaker is Robert Stone, executive producer of “Those on the Front lines of Alzheimer’s & Dementia.”
ACC provides care for patients and caregivers and has an upbeat message for families: “Where there is help, there’s hope.”
Among their programs are specialized care centers, a 24-hour crisis line, nurse consultants and an ID locater service.
“This is our major fundraiser in south county. It gives families an understanding of how a local organization can help,” Barnes said.
Among the guests and sponsors were Rosemary and Ben Krieger. Luncheon tickets at $115.
