2007 "Forget-Me-Not" Gala An Event to Benefit The Alzheimer's Association
New York City Chapter
Raises More Than $1 Million

 

New York City - May 31, 2007. The Alzheimer's Association, New York City Chapter hosted its annual "Forget-Me-Not" gala at The Pierre Hotel where more than 500 members of New York's philanthropic, business, civic and health care communities gathered to honor the NFL, the NFL Players Association and two courageous NFL wives for their collaboration in creating the "88 Plan" - a unique financial protection initiative for former players living with Alzheimer's and dementia.

Emceed by Dana Tyler, CBS 2 Anchor, the event raised more then $1 million. The gala was chaired by Ben and Meredith Jenkins, Tami Schneider, Chair of the "Women in Action" Committee served as the auction chair. Among the evening's highlights was a performance by Metropolitan Opera soprano Claudia White.

Sylvia Mackey, wife of Pro Football Hall of Fame player John Mackey, and Dr. Eleanor Perfetto, wife of former NFL player Ralph Wenzel, were honored with the Chapter's "Advocate Leadership Award" for raising awareness about Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.

Harold R. Henderson, NFL Executive Vice President for Labor Relations and Chairman of the NFL Management Council Executive Committee and Gene Upshaw, Executive Director of the NFL Players Association, were honored with the Association's "Community Leadership Award" for creating the "88 Plan" - the most comprehensive financial protection program for dementia sufferers anywhere in the nation.

"So many of us are here tonight because we have been personally affected by Alzheimer's disease and want to join the fight against it. Tonight we honor those who took that fight a step further. Mrs. Mackey and Dr. Perfetto courageously spoke out about their husbands dementia - and just as importantly, the NFL and its Players Association listened.

'The Alzheimer's Association, New York City Chapter has a "Forget-Me-Not" gala each year to remind ourselves and the community of the important programs and services that we will need to take care of our community until treatment or a cure for this
disease is found".

- Lou-Ellen Barkan, President and CEO of The Alzheimer's Association, New York City Chapter.

* Over 200,00 people diagnosed with Alzheimer's live in the five boroughs of New York City. The mission of the Alzheimer's Association, New York City Chapter is to create and promote comprehensive and humane treatment for persons with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, and to provide support for their family and professional caregivers. The Chapter meets this mission in the community through increasing the public awareness, providing education, creating and encouraging replication of model programs, collaborating with research centers, and undertaking advocacy.
