The 5th Annual Alzheimer’s Luncheon

The 5th Annual Alzheimer’s Luncheon, The Brain Bowl, chaired by local probate attorney, Pamela Higer-Polani, will take place on Friday, April 12, 2019, from 11 am- 1:30 pm at Boca West Country Club, to benefit the Louis & Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center, the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s Community Care and the Parkinson’s Foundation.

This will be the first event ever in South Florida that all four of these organizations will combine forces together, united to raise funds and awareness concerning dementia and Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s in our community.

This year’s celebrity speaker, MARILU HENNER, starred in over 50 films, 7 Broadway shows, and 2 hit classic TV sitcoms, Taxi and Evening Shade. This 5-time Golden Globe nominee is also a NY Times Bestselling Author of 10 books. Ms. Henner is also one of only 37 people in the world documented with Highly Superior Auto-Biographical Memory.

Nearly 1000 business, community and political leaders are expected to attend, network and support finding a cure for this horrific disease that affects so many South Florida residents. In Palm Beach County alone, an estimated 1 in 3 individuals, over the age of 65, is impacted by Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Caring for those suffering from Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia poses a huge cost to those in the labor force, in terms of personal stress and lost work hours. Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias cost American businesses at least $61 billion a year, just in lost productivity, related to employees providing care for individuals with Alzheimer’s or other dementias, including Lewy Body Dementia, from which many with Parkinson's suffer.

 Alzheimer's remains the only leading disease in our country that no one overcomes — your support will help make that no longer true!
