Join us for breakfast and make a difference in the lives of people with dementia
December 8, 2016 – The Society’s vision is of a world without Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias but until that day comes, it is working towards a world in which people living with the disease are welcomed, acknowledged and included. It will take courage and leadership to break down stigma and shame and take steps to build a society that is friendlier, more accepting and more supportive of people living with dementia, whether they are in our families, our communities, or our workplaces. Business and community leaders are uniquely positioned to support our work.
Early in the New Year, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. will be hosting Breakfast to Remember in Victoria and Vancouver, a breakfast event at which attendees hear from an inspiring business leader and network while ensuring we can provide crucial support, education and information for British Columbians who live with dementia.
Event details are below. Individual and full table ticket sales are on now, and sponsorships are also available.
