Anticipation was definitely the feeling one received when leaving the cocktail reception Robin and Roger Meltzer threw for the Alzheimer's Association. The event was held on July 27, 2012 to build up excitement and followers for their upcoming, Alzheimer's Association Rita Hayworth
Gala, "Tonight and Every Night" on October 23, 2012. The reception was not only to raise money, but to get friends and family, who have been affected by the Alzheimer disease or who want to help out a great cause, together and have a fun evening of drinks, food and positive energy.... and they did just that!
The event was filled with many guests such as, CEO of the Alzheimer's Association, Harry Johns and Chief Strategy Officer, Angela Geiger. As Robin Meltzer spoke, the crowd of guests was more than happy to listen to her story and the aspirations that she and the entire committee at Alzheimer's Association aim to conquer. Having a mother and mother-in-law who are both diagnosed with Alzheimer's, it has become most significant in her life as well as her family's. There is no cure, but that is why they put so much time and effort into these fundraisers and events; they want make changes. They want to be able to find answers to help their loved ones and many more. The association raised $1.7 million last year, and is eagerly waiting to top that this year.
Save the date! The Rita Hayworth Gala will be Tuesday, October 23, 2012, starting the night off with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. The night will be filled with entertainment, auctions for fashion, travel and wine and most importantly, the night will fundraise for this special cause.
