Aging Mind Foundation (AMF) announced that it will be hosting its annual gala on Saturday, March 23, at the Thompson Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

The event, now in its 10th year, raises funds in support of the Dallas-based nonprofit’s mission to “fund and advance scientific research focused on finding the causes of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias."

Co-chairing this year’s festivities are James Cagle and Carey Moen, both of whom say that AMF’s mission hits close to home for them.

“We have both witnessed first-hand the cruelty of this disease, and we are committed to supporting AMF’s mission to find the cause and ultimately the prevention of these afflictions,” said Cagle and Moen. “We make this commitment in honor of the loved ones that we have lost as well as anyone who has been affected by this terrible disease.”

Bearing the theme “A Night to Remember,” the upcoming gala will kick off with red-carpet photo opportunities and a cocktail reception, followed by a chef-driven dinner and live musical performances.

Additionally, guests will get the opportunity to bid on several exclusive auction items, including a trip to Peru, a custom necklace by Julianna LeBlanc Designs, a painting from artist Mary Vernon, diamond jewelry courtesy of Bachendorf’s and more.

“With the money raised from this gala and throughout the year, Aging Mind Foundation will be able to provide substantial grants to medical scientists working on life-changing research into the causes of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia,” the co-chairs said.

AMF also announced a collaboration with The Rainwater Charitable Foundation (RCF) for 2024. This year's AMF grant will be administered in conjunction with RCF, enhancing the grant contributions while offering priority access to leading scientific research initiatives aimed at uncovering the root causes of Alzheimer's and dementia-related illnesses. This partnership aims to allocate a total of up to $2 million to grant recipients.

Tickets for this year’s gala can be purchased on the Aging Mind Foundation website.
