Thank you to all who attended the 13th Annual Unforgettable Art: An Affair for Alzheimer’s. What a fantastic year! Forty-five talented artists created works of art throughout the day at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford. While guests watched these masterpieces come to life, they enjoyed music by The Lone Canary and Eddie B. Jazz.
The evening also included delicious hors' d'oeuvres and refreshing beverages from local establishments such as; Artale Wine, LaMonica Beverages, Woodfire Brick Oven Pizza, Abreo, ABC Catering, Wild Rhubarb Eatery & Bakery, Toni’s of Winnebago, The Sweetery and Kokobear Bakery.
Auctioneer, Jeff Marrs and emcee, Meteorologist Eric Sorensen concluded the evening with a live auction of all 45 pieces of artwork. With the support of the community, we raised more than $50,000 to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter! Your support allows us to further our mission of funding research, providing programs, support services and education to Alzheimer’s patients and caregivers.
