2015 Auction Chair, Richard Morgano and Honorary Chair, Mark Novota
Six years ago, Managing Partner Mark Novota and Event Chair Richard Morgano embarked on a shared goal to host a fundraiser to support the needs of people who are effected by Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. The Celebrate Summer Memories Auction is the culmination of their quest to help raise money to support patients and families experiencing Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia.
Greg O'Brien, author of On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s
This year’s auction event is extra special because of the addition of our special guest, Greg O’Brien. Greg is a writer, editor, investigative reporter and publisher with more than 40 years of newspaper and magazine experience and he has Alzheimer’s disease. Greg was diagnosed several years ago with Early Onset Alzheimer’s after a horrific head injury “unmasked” a disease in the making. Working off a cognitive reserve and journalistic grit, Greg wrote On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s, offering a first-person perspective on how to fight this demon of a disease.
Join us to honor a man who is doing more than most could to bring awareness to this disease. His story will amaze you.
This evening of magnificent fun will host a silent and live auction, a gourmet menu, live music, spectacular summer views and a chance to meet like-minded friends — passionate, dedicated and determined to help make a significant difference with this cause.
Did you know? Every sixty-nine seconds another American develops Alzheimer’s disease, and it is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States (According to the Massachusetts Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders State Plan).
