Memory Ball 2015 Raises $75,000 for The Alzheimer Society of Toronto
This year’s Memory Ball was bigger & better than ever. The new location, Palais Royale, proved to be the perfect venue for this annual fundraiser benefiting the Alzheimer Society of Toronto.
The entrance hall was set up with a row of silent auction tables, a photo booth and Art Deco inspired interior. Earth colours of taupe, brown, and gold and live jazz by Sax 4th Avenue greeted us as we entered the main ballroom.
In addition to the delectable food and drinks that were served throughout the night, this year’s title sponsor Feature Foods was also back again to challenge guests with their famous herring paired with shots of vodka. For the ladies (and men), Aveda’s spa experts provided hand massages and touch-ups. A photo booth with tons of Marvel props was also available for attendees to capture the memorable night.
Yesterday, the Young People against Alzheimer’s (YPAA) announced that the Memory Ball has successfully raised $75,000 for the Alzheimer Society of Toronto, surpassing their goal of $65,000. Funds raised from the night will go towards numerous initiatives including education training, support for families, research promoting and much more.
About Young People against Alzheimer’s (YPAA)
YPAA was established in 2011 by a group of young people who has been personally affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The YPAA then created the annual fundraiser Memory Ball to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease among the young demographic. Funds raised from the Memory Ball support the Alzheimer Society of Toronto, the leading health organization in Canada that helps to improve the quality of life for families affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
