An Affair To Remember – May 6th – In Support of the Alzheimers AssociationClick to RSVP
Start DateMay 6, 2006
This year?s An Affair to Remember, a unique collaborative fundraiser hosted by Upstate Visual Arts, Inc. and the Alzheimer?s Association Upstate South Carolina Chapter, will take place Saturday, May 6th, 6:00 PM, at Saffron?s in Greenville?s WestEnd Market. Along with a silent auction and reception, guests will enjoy a live auction, dinner, live music, and dancing to the music of The Funktion, an Upstate band specializing in Motown, Funk, Beach, Oldies and R&B.
Through this annual Gala, we have been able to raise awareness and community participation in the long-term care efforts of families disrupted by Alzheimer?s disease as well as educate the community to the significance of the visual arts? role in a healthy lifestyle. Proceeds from this event are divided equally between Upstate Visual Arts and the Alzheimer?s Association?s Respite Care Program in Greenville, both local non-profit organizations. Last year?s Gala raised nearly $20,000.
To help us make a difference in the lives of those served by both organizations, you are invited to visit our website, www.uvaaffairtoremember.com, to check out our Gala sponsorship, advertising, auction donation, and ticket opportunities. Please note ? to be acknowledged in the Gala invitations, we are asking that sponsorships, ad copy, and auction donations be confirmed by March 24th ? the confirmation deadline for inclusion in the Gala program is April 21st.
For the Alzheimer?s Association, the Gala has become a significant fundraiser for our Respite Care Program that allows family care partners to take short breaks from their full-time care of a loved one with Alzheimer?s. Your support will certainly help make this our most successful year ever!
