Time of Your Life Fundraising Gala

Alzheimer's Fundraising Event- UCI Mind's Time of Your Life GalaTime of Your Life: Toast To The Holidays- Then and Now

With the support of donors, UCI Mind is pursuing alzheimer's research to make memories last a lifetime. The proceeds from Time of Your Life Annual Fundraising Gala will fund vital research directed at effectively treating and preventing this devastating disease.

The Time of Your Life Gala will take guests back to cherished memories of the past holidays, even as we make new memories today. Guests attending the Time of Your Life Gala will celebrate the holidays- then and now such as: Valentine's Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving, Holidays at the Lodge and A Happy New Year's Even Countdown in the Big Apple.

All the money raised by this fundraising event will be used to enable the team of world-renowned scientists to pursue innovative, cutting edge research into the cellular, molecular and clinical risk factors of Alzheimer's Disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. Notable projects underway today include development of a new mouse model which mimics the sporadic and most common form of Alzheimer's Disease, immunization techniques, and creation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) from one's own skin for investigation as a potential treatment modality.

Hundreds of volunteers, like the previous years, have made a lifetime commitment to participating in UCI Mind's long-term study on memory and aging, including brain donation upon death. As the only NIH-designated Alzheimer's Disease center in Orange County, California, and one of only 29 in the Nation, UCI Mind is at the forefront of scientific breakthroughs from the bench to the bedside.

 

Research Today. Hope Tomorrow!

The impact of Alzheimer's Disease on families, the healthcare system, and our society as a whole is staggering today and will grow exponentially over the next 20 years as our population ages. Each day, over 10,000 baby boomers are turning 65 - the age at which the risk of Alzheimer's Disease begins to increase dramatically. Costs associated with caring for people with Alzheimer's Disease are expected to escalate to $1.1 Trillion dollars by 2030. Our nation has adopted the first national plan to address Alzheimer's Disease, the National Alzheimer's Project Act (NAPA), which sets fort the goal of effectively preventing and treating Alzheimer's Disease by 2050. We are in a countdown to 2025. Only 13 years away! Please join us today and help create a memory that lasts a lifetime.

UCI Mind Time of Your Life Event To Raise Funds for Alzheimer's Research

Alzheimer's Disease Fundraising EventResearch Today Translates to Hope for Tomorrow!

It is devastating to have your computer drive crash. The computer's memory is lost.

Imagine how devastating it is, if the computer drive that crashed is your brain.

It is happening to 5.4 million Americans who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Today, every 69 seconds, someone new develops the mind-robbing disease. Costs associated with caring for Alzheimer's patients are estimated to be 1.1 trillion dollars!

Alzheimer's disease is striking Baby Boomers as 10,000 of them turn 65 each day and enter the age of increased risk for developing the disease. Research is our only hope. You are invited to help. UCI MIND urgently needs a massive increase in funding for research now.

Bookmark and Share

 

Scientists, research labs and scientific equipment are costly, but vital, investments in finding the answers we need today. At this time of shrinking budgets, government-funded research cannot provide all of the answers. The gap can only be filled by members of the community as private donors at all levels join as part of the solution.

Researchers at UCI MIND, led by Director, Frank LaFerla, Ph.D., are committed to finding answers about Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders that affect memory and the brain. Through cutting-edge research at this world-class research facility, scientists and clinicians focus on finding a cure and bringing solutions to people and families suffering from dementia.

UCI MIND is Orange County's only federal and state-designated Alzheimer's Disease research and clinical center.

Few illnesses disrupt the quality of life and are as costly to society as dementia. There is hope. UCI MIND is researching ways to make memories last a lifetime.

You can help by participating in the Time of Your Life, an event that will take you back to experience an evening of fun memories from the 1960's. It was a period when the newest Baby Boomers of today were teens and young adults and had no idea that they would be entering the age of increasing risk for developing Alzheimer's.

UCI MIND is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, Tax ID# 95-2226406
