Description

The 4th Annual Alzheimer’s Luncheon, chaired by local probate attorney, Pamela Higer-Polani, will take place on Friday, February 23, 2018, from 11 am- 1:30 pm at Boca West Country Club, to benefit the Louis & Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center, the Alzheimer’s Association and Alzheimer’s Community Care.

This will be the first event ever in South Florida that all three of these organizations will combine forces together, united to raise funds and awareness concerning dementia and Alzheimer’s in our community.

This year’s Honorees will be Marilyn Weinberg (on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association, and introduced by Karyn Turk, former Mrs. Florida); Mary Barnes (on behalf of Alzheimer’s Community Care, and introduced by Scott Greenberg, CEO of Comfort Care Senior Services); and Terry Fedele (on behalf of the Louis & Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center, and introduced by Anne Green).

Over 1000 business, community and political leaders are expected to attend, network and support finding a cure for this horrific disease that affects so many South Florida residents. In Palm Beach County alone, an estimated 1 in 3 individuals, over the age of 65, is impacted by this devastating condition.

Dick Schmidt, our Keynote Speaker and lifelong resident of Florida, holds a background in banking, real estate development, and aviation. His time is filled with philanthropic endeavors, which he spearheads with his wife, Barbara, an international bestselling author, in her own right. He has two grown children and resides in Boca Raton, Florida. Dick’s recent novel, Memory Road, is a thriller about a retired senior CIA agent suffering from Alzheimer's evading the world's leading intelligence agencies. The book targets the challenges of Alzheimer’s, focusing on one man’s journey to find home. Dick is also the author of The Boy and the Dolphin.

Judy Herman, a former “Jeopardy” champion, and an avid puzzle and games enthusiast, will be hosting, setting cerebral challenges for the audience. In addition to teaching monthly classes at dozens of senior communities, Judy presents her popular “Braintertainment” programs on cruise ships, along with many business, social, charitable and educational organizations. Each table will work as a team during the Luncheon, to solve fun word games and logic puzzles, with lots of opportunities to network & win fantastic prizes at the same time!
