LA JOLLA — More than 250 guests are expected to attend Postcards From The Pacific: Oceans of Memories, a dinner dance from 6 to 10 p.m. June 26 to benefit the nonprofit The George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers. This year’s signature event will be held at Scripps Seaside Forum at 8610 Kennel Way. Carol LeBeau will be Mistress of Ceremonies.
The evening is both a celebration of another successful year of providing adult day health care services around San Diego County and a fundraiser to continue providing those services to families affected by Alzheimer’s and other memory-impairment diseases.
As the largest number of Americans reaches retirement age, Alzheimer’s and other similar progressive and fatal diseases threaten life as we know it. The 2009 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures reports that Alzheimer’s disease alone has affected more than 5.3 million people in the U S and now is the sixth leading cause of death in our country.
For more than 25 years, The Glenner Family Centers have helped these families through quality adult day programs, family support, case management, crisis intervention, family and community education, advocacy, information and referrals. Glenner Family Centers offers services in three strategic locations in San Diego County: Hillcrest, Encinitas and Chula Vista.
