Art created by participants with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia will be on display and for sale at our MORE. GOOD. DAYS. Art Gala and Silent Auction, a benefit for Charleston County's only nonprofit respite program serving and supporting families affected by dementia. This seventh annual event will be held at the Charleston Yacht Club on Thursday, October 26th, beginning at 6 pm.

The benefit comes at a time of heightened awareness of the epidemic of dementia in its varied forms--and the need to offer programs and support for caregivers.

Art is a key element at each of Respite Care's day programs--in West Ashley, Mt. Pleasant, Johns Island, and North Charleston. Professional artists volunteer throughout the year to guide participants in the creative process. Over 50 people with dementia participate. Respite Care day programs are frequently the only relief available to caregivers of loved ones with dementia.

Supporters attending the gala will enjoy champagne, cocktails and a delectable array of hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction. Tickets are available for $45 and can be purchased here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/more-good-days-art-gala-silent-auction-tickets-37397094717?aff=es2, or by calling Jennifer at 843-408-5243.

For over 20 years, Respite Care Charleston has been helping residents of Charleston County coping with dementia. We bring smiles to the faces of people with Alzheimer’s disease and other types dementia. Our day program participants look forward to the simple pleasures of being with other people. Our support groups are a place for caregivers to share and learn in a safe and confidential setting.
