One Night to Remember

| September 30, 2013 | Parties

Imagine celebrating all of your favorite holidays—Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve. Now imagine doing it in just one night. The team behind UCI Mind’s Time of Your Life benefit made it happen for some 500 partiers who filled The Hangar at the fairgrounds for the annual soiree, aptly themed Toast to the Holidays—Then and Now. Alice and Sean Cowell, and Linda and Burton Young (two of the five couples who served as co-chairs) got into the spirit of the soiree at each themed vignette. Guests were treated to lovely chocolate-covered strawberries and feasted on savory pies, and they bid away on auction prizes like a stay at The St. Regis Monarch Beach and a trip to the Big Apple. The evening ended with a countdown and a ball drop—and nearly $100,000 raised for Alzheimer’s research at the university’s Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders. Cheers!
