UCI MIND Adapts Annual Fundraiser For Alzheimer's Research With Virtual Venue

UCI MIND Adapts Annual Fundraiser For Alzheimer’s Research With Virtual Venue, Complimentary Attendance, and Dinner Delivered

A December to Remember goes digital with free online broadcast, plus options for drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and dinner right at home

IRVINE, Calif. – For the first time in the event’s decade-long history, the University of California, Irvine Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders (UCI MIND)’s A December to Remember Gala will raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research in a digital setting. While many sectors remain at a standstill due to the pandemic, nonprofits like UCI MIND know that their mission must march forward. The virtual gala event will take place online on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020, 5:30-7 p.m. and is free to attend. To register to attend, visit

“We saw an incredible opportunity as we reimagined our annual gala to welcome more attendees than ever to learn about Alzheimer’s disease and the discoveries made here at UCI MIND, as well as to inspire members of our community who share a dedication to our mission,” said Senior Director of Development, Danny Harper. “This digital format gives us a platform to educate, entertain, and engage more hearts and minds, no matter where they are, and no matter if they decide to wear black-tie attire or their pajamas.”

The online broadcast will feature testimonials, an online auction, and performances from Justin Willman, the star and creator of the hit Netflix series Magic for Humans, and Ashley Campbell, singer-songwriter and daughter of the late Glen Campbell. Both performers have personally witnessed the impact of Alzheimer’s disease in their lives, and understand the importance of supporting organizations like UCI MIND, Orange County’s only state and federally designated Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, as they work toward a cure for the disease affecting 5.8 million Americans.

Those who find themselves craving a culinary experience to accompany the educational and entertaining event are invited to add one of three dining options to their registration. Food and drink packages will be safely delivered by 5 p.m. on the day of the gala.

UCI MIND’s A December to Remember Gala is just one way to support its mission to advance research into improved diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Those interested in contributing to this critical mission can donate to UCI MIND or enroll in the UCI Consent-to-Contact (C2C) Registry to learn about research participation opportunities.
