About the Gala

The 8th Annual UCI MIND Gala, A December to Remember, will be held on the evening of December 2, 2017, at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach. Proceeds will support Alzheimer’s disease research at UCI MIND and the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement. Cocktail attire requested. 

Widely respected among the scientific community, UCI MIND is a non-profit Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center that receives highly competitive grant funding from the National Institutes of Health. It is one of 30 such centers across the United States and the only center in Orange County.  

The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement, founded by Maria Shriver, is a global alliance of individuals, organizations, researchers, foundations, influencers and industry leaders committed to finding out why Alzheimer’s disease disproportionately affects women, with the hope that answering this question will lead to a cure for all.

This year, UCI MIND partners with the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement to generate the philanthropic support required to accelerate research today for cures tomorrow.  We hope you will join us for this special evening of fun and philanthropy that will bring us closer to a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
