The Alzheimer Society of B.C. and Fairchild Media Group are proud to announce that the first-ever Telethon for Alzheimer’s, co-produced by the two organizations and broadcast last Saturday, November 7, raised over $165,000. Proceeds will help provide support and education for people living with dementia and their caregivers in the Chinese community and enable continued efforts to build a more dementia-friendly province.
Due to the COVID-19 and the need to maintain social distancing, filming of the telethon was conducted entirely by video conferencing. Staff at Fairchild Television, including program hosts Mary Lo and Ricky Cheung, upheld the highest level of professionalism while interviewing guests remotely, sharing stories of people affected by dementia and introducing the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s work.
The Alzheimer Society of B.C would like to thank Fairchild Media Group and all donors and supporters. Special thanks goes out to the anonymous donors who generously matched, dollar for dollar, the first $50,000 donated.
The Society will continue its work to grow a community of care around people affected by dementia. Building a truly dementia-friendly province – a place where people affected by dementia are acknowledged, accepted and included – is just around the corner.
