Alzheimer's Gala 2008

"My Dress Looks Like A Disco Ball" - Audrey Geisel


'Disco Ball' was the theme for 2008 Alzheimer's Association Gala May 10th, 2008 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Guests arrived in 'disco chic' causing quite a few Studio 54 flashbacks.

Flashing, sparkling and dazzling were Constance Hughes, Maggie Watkins, and Audrey Geisel. Rick Wildman dazzled in Travolta 'Night Fever' chic.

Gala Chairpersons Susan Kazmarek-Biddick and Craig Biddick chose a pink, petaled and layered Kay Unger dress and sparkly bow tie respectively.

And there were more important sorts there. They included founding Chair Darlene Shiley, Honorary Chair Virginia Monday, Rana Sampson and Mayor Jerry Sanders, Commissioner Laurie Black, Bea and Bob Epsten, Lael and Jay Kovtun, Donna Thal, Bob Watkins, husband of Maggie, Gail and Marty Levin, Gayle and Steve Francis, Sook and Ron Hansen, Ken Kramer, Marianne Kushi, Susan Turnbull, Crystal Watkins, Wanda Kaufman and Richard Levi.

Wanda was wearing an 'unforgettable' sparkler from Richard.

The evening celebrated "Young Scientists" at the Memories in the Making "Disco Ball." Kind of a mouthful but all with a poignant purpose. The Alzheimer's Association San Diego/ Imperial Chapter's mission is to "eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. The Chapter provides free services, including support groups, educational seminars, 24-hour Helpline, research library, Care Consultations," and more.
