We invite you to the 2020 AMF GALA | FOCUS ON A CAUSE, Saturday, February 29, 2020, at The Joule Hotel. This 6th Annual AMF Gala is the major fundraising event of the year for Aging Mind Foundation.
The Board and Executive Board of the Aging Mind Foundation (AMF), Honorary Chairs, Lynda and Chris Ludeman, and Co-chairs, Jo Marie Lilly and John Clutts, take great pleasure in announcing the 2020 AMF Gala Honorees, Cookie and Dan Owen. This special evening will honor Cookie and Dan while focusing awareness on the cause and raising critical funds for Alzheimer’s and dementia research.
Alzheimer’s disease is the only leading cause of death on the rise, with more than 5 million Americans now estimated to have the disease. The impact to individuals, families and businesses is staggering. Since 2015, AMF has raised over $2.5 million to fund high-quality medical research focused on finding the cause of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The 2020 AMF beneficiary will be Columbia University Medical Center’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center under the leadership of Dr. Scott Small.
The 2020 AMF GALA will be a progressive evening staged within The Joule Hotel. Complimentary valet on Main Street will direct guests to board our “Mind Lift”. The Joule’s glass elevator will transport guests to the beginning of a thoughtfully curated gala. Live music will serenade supporters on their way to a “Heady Cocktail Reception” in The Fortnight Ballroom. Following the canapés and conversation, patrons will be seated in the Mosaic Ballroom for a “Mindful Menu” of bespoke creations prepared by The Joule’s culinary team. Greg Creed, CEO. Yum! Brands, will be your “Thought Leader and Emcee” for the evening.
Immediately following dinner keep your seats for AMF’s Live Auction known for unique, one-of-a-kind experiences packaged with our discerning supporters in mind. To top off the evening, raise the roof with desserts, dancing and live music at “Top of the Mind” on The Joule Rooftop Terrace and celebrate your support of the 6th Annual AMF Gala!
Patrons who join us in supporting the gala are invited to the 2020 AMF Gala Patron Party, Wednesday, February 26, 2020. The Cocktail Reception will feature specialty cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres provided by the culinary experts at Mirador.
