Alzheimer’s Association Making Memories Event

Alzheimer’s Association Making Memories Event

The Alzheimer’s Association celebrated its annual Making Memories fundraiser by throwing a Wild Night to Remember April 15 at Casino Aztar. Guests arrived in animal prints to bid on silent auction items. Hors d’oeuvres, samplings of South African Wines, and a live auction that included an African Safari were part of the fun. The evening honored the contributions of Tom Bodkin, who received the Annual Giving award, Redbanks Nursing Home, which received the Professional Caregiver of the Year award, and Shirley Becker and Dava Roth, who received the Family Caregiver of the Year award. Old National Bank was recognized as the organization’s Corporate Partner of the Year, and 14WFIE was named Media Partner of the Year. Dr. Jerry and Shirley Becker served as the evening’s honorary chairs. Pictured: Dennis Jon Bailey, Diane Douglas and Randy Wheeler.
