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

The Alzheimer's Association hosted a most successful sold out 13th 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 Bubert family, from Dittmer's Gourmet Meats and Wurst-Haus Inc., in Los Altos, shared their personal journey with this disease and our auctioneer, Bob Dutcher, helped us exceed our live auction goals.   There were over 340 guests, a record number of attendees again this year that enjoyed a wine and heavy hors d'oeuvres reception and, they were entertained by the soft jazz of the Magnolia Jazz Band.  With over 200 silent auction packages, 18 live auction items and our Fund-A-Need portion of the evening, the event exceeded goal and raised over $208,810!  Thank you all for supporting this wonderful event.

The highlight of this year’s auction was of course the artwork and those that create it in the Memories in the Making program.

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.
