Save the date for our 2018 Memories in the Making Art Auction & Gala!

Friday, May 11, 2018

Last year we raised more than $150,000 at our annual Memories in the Making Art Auction & Gala! We couldn't have done it without your amazing support.

The Friday, May 12, event sold out, with 350 guests joining us at the Sentinel Hotel for a remarkable evening of entertainment. Auction highlights included trips to Italy, Mexico, Disneyland and Central Oregon; fabulous gift baskets; and inspirational art from local artists and participants in the program. Other memorable moments included the infamous dessert dash, wine raffle and humorous “heads and tails” game. All funds raised at the Auction & Gala benefit the Alzheimer's Association Oregon Chapter.

Tickets will be available for purchase soon!

We have already received requests from those that want to sponsor our 2018 event. If you are interested, please contact Eileen Kravetz at ekravetz@alz.org to ensure a Memories in the Making sponsorship is included in your corporate 2018 budget. Thank you.

About Memories in the Making®

Memories in the Making resulted from the exploration of the use of art as an alternative form of expression for people with dementia. While Alzheimer’s disease brings constant reminders of failures and losses, Memories in the Making provides a nonjudgmental environment in which participants can express their feelings. The focus is on the process rather than the product, allowing people with dementia to experience moments of joy and a renewed sense of accomplishment and self-respect.

Thank you to our 2017 Sponsors!
