“100 % Local” Gala Recap

On Saturday, March 23, 2019, nearly 350 people gathered at the Marriott Irvine Spectrum hotel to dine, dance, and donate funds to support the work of Alzheimer’s Orange County.  Through ticket sales, sponsorships, live and silent auctions, and fund-a-need donations, our gala raised a total of $440,000.

The gala, themed “100% Local” celebrated our long-rooted history in the community and highlighted a key fundraising aspect of the event: that 100% of the funds raised stay local, to fund programs and services and support for local families battling Alzheimer’s and dementia.

We Started Here

Thank you to all of our local community sponsors! So many of our partnerships are with local organizations, just like us. This year, in light of our 100% Local Gala, we wanted to spotlight our friends in the community, so we created the “We Started Here” map. Take a look at all of the great things that Orange County does.
