Have the Time of Your Life / The World of Tomorrow Where Memories Last Forever

Time of Your Life is the premier event supporting Alzheimer’s research at UCI MIND. Each year, guests celebrate a memorable evening that helps move the world closer to a day without Alzheimer’s disease.

Imagine being transported to The World of Tomorrow…where memories last forever.  On Saturday, May 16th, the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach will provide a backdrop for an evening envisioning a future world where Alzheimer’s Disease is a distant memory, thanks to the generosity of donors and the work of researchers.  Journey with us to the city of tomorrow as you Shop for the Future in a world of excitement and innovation.  Enjoy an elegant dinner, surrounded by the stars and imagine a time when our memories will last a lifetime.

Few illnesses disrupt life and are as costly to families and society as dementia.  However, there is hope.  With generous support and underwriting from sponsors and community partners and from YOU, Time of Your Life 2015 can raise vital financial support for researchers working to fulfill UCI MIND’s mission to research ways to make memories last a lifetime… in our lifetimes.

To learn about how you can become involved, contact Linda Scheck, Director of Development and Donor Stewardship, 949-824-3251 or lscheck@uci.edu.
