About the 2016 Gala

The 7th Annual UCI MIND Gala, A December to Remember, will be held on the evening of December 3, 2016, at the luxurious Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach.  The event will raise funds to support Alzheimer’s disease research at UCI MIND, Orange County’s only state and federally funded Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.

Widely respected among the scientific community, UCI MIND is one of only 29 such centers in the nation and has been awarded highly competitive grant funding each year.  However, additional funding is necessary to move researchers closer to prevention, treatment, and a cure. The annual Gala aims to generate the additional, vital philanthropic support required to take Alzheimer’s disease research to the next level.

Last year’s Gala attracted 300 guests and raised over $200,000 for Alzheimer’s disease research at UCI MIND.  Kick off this holiday season with A December to Remember, where donors and researchers will join together for an evening of fun and philanthropy that will have a lasting impact.
