“Pearls of Wisdom: 30 Years of Serving San Diego”

Oct 13, 2012
5:30 pm until 10:30 pm

Glenner Memory Care Centers of San Diego will be pulling out the red
carpet and cutting up a rug as it celebrates 30 years of helping
families in San Diego County.

Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.
today; dementia hits most after the age of 65. As baby boomers age,
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's disease, as well as other
types of dementia, impact more and more families. Right here in San
Diego, there are more than 90,000 individuals with AD and more are
diagnosed every 90 seconds. Glenner adult day care and counseling
services don't just help San Diego families keep loved ones at home;
they also help save millions in institutional care tax dollars.

The Glenner Anniversary Gala features great auction items, delicious
dishes, a fantastic band and wonderful venue. Dress is black tie
optional; dancing shoes are suggested.

All proceeds from the Gala go to Glenner adult day programs in South
Bay, Hillcrest and Encinitas in order to continue meeting the growing
need for safe, secure and social adult day programs and support services
for families caring for a loved one with dementia.

Tickets are $225 per person; early bird and other discounts available.
