Memories in the Making Art Auction & Gala 2022
The Annual Memories in the Making Art Auction and Gala was back in person for 2022 and it was amazing! Together attendees raised over $228,000 and enjoyed a phenomenal evening at The Hilton Downtown Portland. The fantastic success of this beloved event reflects the ever-increasing dedication and enthusiasm of donors, volunteers, and families. Thank you for supporting the Oregon and Southwest Washington Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association by donating to this great cause.
Memories in the Making is a unique fine-arts program for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The program’s creative process provides a safe and validating environment for artistic expression, resulting in a creative and nonverbal way to communicate and capture precious moments through art.
COVID definitely changed so much of what we do and we know that during this time we had to completely halt this program. We are now focused on regrowth of this great program and we invite interested facilitators to an upcoming training to get the program up and running in your community:
