2018 Alzheimer Rendezvous, an Evening to Remember... Presented by LiUNA! Local 607

Join us for an Evening to Remember with Guest Speaker Bill Carr …  We are thrilled to once again be hosting our annual Alzheimer Rendezvous, presented by LiUNA Local 607, raising funds in support of the Alzheimer Society of Thunder Bay. We invite you to join us on the evening of October 11th, 2018 at the Victoria Inn Hotel & Conference Centre.  All funds raised will support the mission and vision of the organization.  Last year this event raised over $20,000 in support of local programs and services for individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.     

This year’s Guest Speaker, Bill Carr, is no stranger to the Alzheimer Society, as he brought our guests to their feet with laughter in 2014, as our Special Guest Speaker. Bill helps people see their world in new and exciting ways. His unique blend of humour and insight inspires laughter and consideration, offering his audience a fresh perspective on what they face every day. At the root of all of Bill’s work is the use of humour to help people reflect on their own innate human nature and understand who they are in a greater social context. Bill’s career has seen him perform on stages across the country most notably in Nova Scotia at Neptune Theatre, Mermaid Theatre and the Atlantic Theatre Festival. He has written and performed in numerous radio dramas and news programs for CBC and has appeared on countless television programs, several movies and advertisements.

Rendezvous brings together friends, families, colleagues, businesses, and organizations to advance the cause and raise funds to address the needs of local families who are affected by dementia. We need your help more than ever.  While Canadians are living longer and healthier lives, dementia is growing fast.  Right now, more than 564,000 Canadians are living with dementia. In the district of Thunder Bay, more than 2,800 people are diagnosed. These numbers are expected to rise by 66% by 2031. Last year alone, the Alzheimer Society of Thunder Bay helped over 700 families along their dementia journey, offering free counselling, caring support and education.  Our programs and services team work diligently to meet the growing demand, but growth of dementia continues to outpace our ability to provide services to everyone who needs them.
