估計到 2050 年,在省內每三位腦退化患者當中,就會有一位是亞裔人士,對比於 2020 年,增長超過百份之七百 (700%)。因此,與文化相關 (例如中文) 的支援和教育的需求將不斷增加,而「關愛腦友記」慈善晚宴所籌得的善款有助協會為受腦退化人士提供關鍵性的支援和服務,並支持相關研究,確保他們能夠用熟悉的語言溝通及過有意義的生活。

2024 Charity Dinner cheque presentation

After four years of hiatus due to the pandemic, we were excited to finally bring back the in-person Charity Dinner for Alzheimer's back to the Continental Seafood Restaurant in Richmond on February 25. Over 450 guests and community leaders came together to show their support for the people affected by dementia, helping raise more than $154,000.

Funds raised will help the Alzheimer Society of B.C. to provide education, information and support to people living with dementia and their families, as well as fund dementia research.

We sincerely thanked everyone for their dedicated support; special appreciation goes to Mrs. Taam, award-winning celebrity chef, for consulting on the dinner menu and selecting brain-healthy and nutritious ingredients. Research has shown healthy dietary choices not only improve general health but also help maintain brain function in the long term and slow down memory decline.

The evening was full of exciting entertainment. The Charity Dinner started with a traditional lion dance performance to celebrate the Year of the Dragon, followed by a series of activities, including the popular silent auction, photo booth, lucky draws and family caregiver sharing by Eric Li.

Dr. Robin Hsiung, Researcher and Associate Professor at University of British Columbia, used trivia to deepen everyone's knowledge on dementia. The God of Fortune also made an appearance, ending the evening with joy and happiness, spreading the care to people affected by dementia in the community while raising funds for the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

By 2050, it is estimated that one out of four people living with dementia in B.C. will be of Asian origin – up more than 700 per cent from 2020. Therefore, the need for culturally-relevant (e.g., Chinese) support and education will continue to increase. The funds raised by the Charity Dinner will help the Alzheimer Society of B.C. provide vital support and services for people affected by the disease and support dementia research to ensure they can communicate in their familiar languages and live a meaningful life. 

We'd like to express our gratitude to the Chinese Advisory Committee and the Chinese community for their support and contributions to the Alzheimer Society of B.C., as well as sponsors, media and community partners, volunteers and all the guests for their generosity that evening. Their presence not only supports the Alzheimer Society of B.C. but also gives people affected by dementia the courage to live on.

Thanks to "Friends of the Society – a group of anonymous donors for their generous support – the first $60,000 in donations was matched one-to-one, doubling the impact.

We look forward to seeing you next year!
