Alzheimer's Fundraising Event- UCI Mind's Time of Your Life GalaTime of Your Life: Toast To The Holidays- Then and Now

Time of Your Life is UCI Mind’s biggest fundraising event for 2013. This Fundraising Gala is the premiere event supporting Alzheimer’s Research at UCI Mind. Each year, guest enjoy a memorable evening that helps move us closer to a world without Alzheimer’s Disease.



With the support of donors, UCI Mind is pursuing alzheimer’s research to make memories last a lifetime. The proceeds from Time of Your Life Annual Fundraising Gala will fund vital research directed at effectively treating and preventing this devastating disease.

The Time of Your Life Gala will take guests back to cherished memories of the past holidays, even as we make new memories today. Guests attending the Time of Your Life Gala will celebrate the holidays- then and now such as: Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving, Holidays at the Lodge and A Happy New Year’s Even Countdown in the Big Apple.

All the money raised by this fundraising event will be used to enable the team of world-renowned scientists to pursue innovative, cutting edge research into the cellular, molecular and clinical risk factors of Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. Notable projects underway today include development of a new mouse model which mimics the sporadic and most common form of Alzheimer’s Disease, immunization techniques, and creation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) from one’s own skin for investigation as a potential treatment modality.

Hundreds of volunteers, like the previous years, have made a lifetime commitment to participating in UCI Mind’s long-term study on memory and aging, including brain donation upon death. As the only NIH-designated Alzheimer’s Disease center in Orange County, California, and one of only 29 in the Nation, UCI Mind is at the forefront of scientific breakthroughs from the bench to the bedside.


Research Today. Hope Tomorrow!

The impact of Alzheimer’s Disease on families, the healthcare system, and our society as a whole is staggering today and will grow exponentially over the next 20 years as our population ages. Each day, over 10,000 baby boomers are turning 65 – the age at which the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease begins to increase dramatically. Costs associated with caring for people with Alzheimer’s Disease are expected to escalate to $1.1 Trillion dollars by 2030. Our nation has adopted the first national plan to address Alzheimer’s Disease, the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA), which sets fort the goal of effectively preventing and treating Alzheimer’s Disease by 2050. We are in a countdown to 2025. Only 13 years away! Please join us today and help create a memory that lasts a lifetime.
