GREENWICH, Conn. – The Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter invites the Fairfield County community to attend Celebrating Hope 2016 on Friday, April 29 in Greenwich in honor of the 73,000 Connecticut residents who are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease and their 177,000 caregivers.

The event will feature dinner, dancing, an extensive live and silent auction, raffle prizes and a speaker. Guests are encouraged to wear the Alzheimer’s signature color purple to the event and to bid on items such as vacation getaways, luxury accessories and much more.

Celebrating Hope began with six women – sisters Kendra Farn Finz (Greenwich) and Alison Farn Leigh (Greenwich); Lynn Hagerbrant (Greenwich); Lisa Rae Koorbusch (Darien); Cristin Marandino (Stamford); and Sharon Parker (Greenwich). As caregivers, each has confronted the overwhelming obstacles and anguish associated with managing Alzheimer’s disease. In 2013, the women joined together with the hope that they could make a difference. With the support of the Connecticut Chapter, Celebrating Hope was founded.

Since its inception, Celebrating Hope has raised more than $500,000 at three sold-out events. Now in its fourth year, the Celebrating Hope 2016 event committee counts more than 55 members from towns throughout Fairfield County. Greenwich resident Nancy Ozizmir joins Ginge Cabrera and Cristin Marandino as event cochairmen this year. Additional members of the core event committee include Silent Auction cochairmen Lisa Anderson (Darien) and Jeffrey Ruden (Westport); marketing chairman Sharon Parker (Greenwich); and board chair Lynn Hagerbrant (Greenwich).

Celebrating Hope will be held from 6:30-11 p.m. at L’Escale at the Delamar Hotel in Greenwich.

Multiple event sponsorship opportunities are available.

Tickets are $250 each and are currently available for purchase online here or via phone at 860-828-2828.
