Friends for a Benefit (FFAB)’s Second Annual Memory Ball in support of the Alzheimer Society of Toronto was held on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013, bringing together over 430 guests and raising over $35,000 for a great cause at Andrew Richard Designs, one of our favourite loft style venue in Toronto.
The event featured a wine reception, pickled herring & vodka tasting by Feature Foods, delicious hors d’oeuvres by Toben Food by Design, and a hand massage station by Aveda where my frostbitten hands were nourished.

Live music were provided by the Toronto Clarinet Choir for the night:

A moving film put together by the FFAB members was shown during the event to raise awareness for the Alzheimer’s disease among young demographics.  Each FFAB member has been personally touched by Alzheimer’s disease. It was shocking to know that Alzheimer’s disease can be diagnosed as early as the age of 19.
