In honor of the recent Presidential Proclamation designating November as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter kicked off Celebrating Hope 2017. The fifth annual event will be held on Friday, May 5, 2017 at L’escale at the Delamar Hotel in Greenwich. Event proceeds will benefit the 74,000 people who are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease in Connecticut and their 177,000 caregivers.
Celebrating Hope 2017 event co-chairmen Ginge Cabrera, Cristin Marandino and Nancy Ozizmir hosted a kick-off cocktail event in Greenwich. Eleonora Tornatore-Mikesh, Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter President/CEO, welcomed guests and thanked the volunteers for their commitment. “Thanks to Celebrating Hope, we doubled our services in the past year. We touched 154,000 Connecticut residents in one year and that is incredible,” she offered. Funds raised by the Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter benefit research, educational programs, care and support.
