The event benefited Alzheimer’s, strokes, Parkinson’s and other neurological degenerative diseases including young onset programs for those in their 30s, 40s and 50s.

Now in its 16th year, the annual luncheon raises funds to provide financial sustainability for the Adult Day programs at Sid Jacobson JCC that improve the lives of those afflicted with dementia and other chronic conditions as well as providing support and education for their families.
