Memories in the Making Art & Wine Auction Save the Date - March 11, 2016

The 13th Annual Memories in the Making Art and Wine Auction will return on Friday, March 11, 2016 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA.

Last year’s highlights included a sold out 12th Annual Memories in the Making Art and Wine Auction at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View.  Our Master of Ceremonies Dennis O’Donnell, sports director from KPIX, led us all during the evening’s program, the Carlson family shared their personal journey with this disease and our auctioneer, Bob Dutcher, helped us reach our live auction goals.   There were over 360 guests, a record number of attendees enjoyed a wine and heavy hors d'oeuvres reception and, they were entertained by the soft jazz of the Magnolia Jazz Band.  With over 230 silent auction packages, 20 live auction items and our Fund-A-Need portion of the evening, the event raised over $187,000!

The other highlight of last year’s auction was of course the artwork and those that create it in the Memories in the Making program. Our top selling auction prizes were a unique Jade sculpture by artist, Lyle Sopel and the signature water color art piece that was selected for all our promotional items for the year’s auction. Both items sold for $4000 each.

Memories in the Making™ is a unique program of creative expression for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Through art and the creative process, these individuals speak to us, offering an essence of themselves. The art they produce is a tangible means of expression which speaks to their families, their professional caregivers and to the public.
