Cheers to 40 Years: A Night at the USO Annual Gala Recap

On Saturday, October 15, 2022, over 250 people gathered at the Balboa Bay Resort to dine and raise over $700,000 to support the work of Alzheimer’s Orange County.

Thanks to our supporters, we can continue to make a difference in vulnerable older adults’ lives. The funds raised will go towards funding programs and services and support for local families battling Alzheimer’s and dementia.

If you would like to make a donation, there’s still time! Visit our donation page to make a contribution. We thank everyone for their generosity and support.
