Breakfast to Remember
Thank you to all of our volunteers, guests, speakers and sponsors of Breakfast to Remember, presented by Trillium Boutique Senior Living. Your support helped us break down stigma and build a community of care for people affected by dementia. Because of you, we raised more than $230,000 towards making B.C. more inclusive and caring for people living with dementia through Breakfast to Remember events in Vancouver and Victoria. On behalf of the Alzheimer Society of B.C., thank you.
On February 22 at Victoria’s Fairmont Empress, Bob Lenarduzzi, president of Vancouver Whitecaps FC, opened up about his family’s experience caring for two people living with dementia, while Jack Knox, columnist for Victoria’s Times Colonist, shared his thoughts on aging and seeing someone he was close to hide a dementia diagnosis to avoid the stigma of the disease. The fifth-annual Breakfast to Remember in Victoria was hosted by CTV Vancouver Island’s Joe Perkins and welcomed Health Minister Adrian Dix and Parliamentary Secretary for Seniors Anne Kang, both of whom spoke to the importance of the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s work. Breakfast to Remember, presented by Trillium Boutique Senior Living in Victoria raised more than $40,000 to support British Columbians affected by dementia.
A special thank you to all of our event sponsors.
