We recently worked on the Time of Your Life event with Elite OC Productions. The charity benefit raised money for research at UCI Mind, an organization dedicated to finding answers to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The event allowed guests to go back in time and experience some nostalgia; all while enjoying cocktails, food stations, silent and super silent auctions, a room transformation tour, wine wall, entertainment and dancing. Guests were transported back to the 60’s in spaces like The British Invasion, Supper Club, Futurama, Motown, TV Land and Surf’s Up!
It is the mission of the Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders, UCI MIND, to research ways to make memories last a lifetime by advancing knowledge of brain aging, encouraging early detection and treatment of cognitive impairment, and by promoting brain health.
In 1906, Dr. Alois Alzheimer, a German neuropsychiatrist, discovered the disease that would eventually bear his name and now affects more than 5.4 million Americans. Today, hundreds of researchers and clinicians at UCI MIND are dedicated to preserving brain health.
UCI MIND advances knowledge of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s through cutting-edge research directed at:
- Identifying the causes of these conditions and factors that affect their progression,
- Finding ways to effectively treat and prevent cognitive decline,
- Pinpointing lifestyle factors that promote wellness and successful aging,
- Translating laboratory findings at the research bench into real-life settings for people in clinical trials.
Community-minded, UCI MIND serves as an expert source of education about aging and cognition in Orange County.
Internationally recognized for its studies on Alzheimer’s disease, UCI MIND is one of 29 prestigious Research Centers funded by the National Institute on Aging, one of 10 California Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers, and a leading national site for clinical trials.
UCI MIND is Orange County’s only federal and state designated Alzheimer’s Disease Research and Diagnostic Center.
From bench science to the clinic, UCI MIND is researching ways to make memories last a lifetime.alzheimer's, benefit, british invasion, charity event, elite oc productions, futurama, motown, supper club, surf's up, time of your life event, tv land, uci mind
