CaringKind

Annual "Forget-Me-Not Gala

 

 

(Monday, June 4, 2018 – New York, NY) – Members of New York City’s philanthropic, business, health care and Alzheimer’s communities gathered tonight at The Pierre at the annual “Forget-Me-Not” Gala hosted by CaringKind, New York City’s leading expert in Alzheimer’s and dementia care for more than three decades. The event, emceed by Tony Award winning actor and tireless Alzheimer’s advocate David Hyde Pierce, raised $1.2 million. The fundraiser was chaired by Liz Hirsh and David HirshCaringKind Board Chair.

CaringKind honored its President and CEO Lou-Ellen Barkan with the Special Appreciation Award for her outstanding leadership and commitment to raising awareness about Alzheimer’s, other dementias, and caregiving. Barkan who cared for her mother and father, both of whom had dementia, will retire at the end of the fiscal year after nearly 15 years as the head of the organization.

 

Heath B. McLendon, Board Member Emeritus, said, “Lou-Ellen’s record of achievements is significant.  She led with a determination forged, in part, by her personal connection to dementia – having cared for her mother and father who lived with the disease.  A strong mentor to staff, an outspoken advocate and a fighter for what she believed was right, she inspired all of us to think outside the box.  All of this has put a much-needed focus on New York City’s Alzheimer’s community and cemented CaringKind’s position as a leading expert in dementia caregiving. We wish her well and are strengthened in the knowledge that we will continue to rely on her friendship and support as we move forward.”

 

Barkan said, “Like my impending retirement, tonight’s event is bittersweet for me. I am surrounded by CaringKind staff who make a marked difference in the lives of those we serve every single day. As I look out into the audience, I see some of the Alzheimer’s community’s most brilliant medical and research professionals and fiercest advocates and supporters. I may be giving up the title of President and CEO, but I will never give up on the fight against Alzheimer’s. I’d like to congratulate Dr. Manji and this year’s TackleALZ NYC team for their well-deserved honor tonight. I’d also like to thank each of you for making the second act of my career one of great purpose and impact.”

 

Honored with the Young Leadership Award was this year’s TackleALZ NYC team. The team just recently played its annual Powder Puff Charity Football Game, a flag football competition and fundraiser, to raise money for CaringKind.

 

The Corporate Leadership Award was presented to Husseini K. Manji, MD Global Head, Neuroscience Therapeutic Area at Janssen Research & Development, LLC, one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson.

 

Also in attendance was Dr. Max Gomez, CBS 2 Medical Reporter, and esteemed members of the scientific community including Dr. Peter Davies, Dr. Mony de Leon, Dr. Warachal Faison, Dr. Silvia Fossati, Dr. Richard Isaacson, Dr. Jose LuchsingerDr. Mary Mittelman, and Dr. Mary Sano.

 

The evening offered a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, and dinner and dancing to Hank Lane Music and Productions with Harris Lane, band leader. Among the live auction items were a VIP Package to Broadway’s “Hello, Dolly!” and a dinner with David Hyde Pierce and some of the world’s leading Alzheimer’s and dementia scientists.
