For the first time ever, we've become inspired to have a theme for Memory Ball. In choosing a theme, it had to be relevant to the cause, and of course a lot of fun. As such, Claire has come up with a beautifully meaningful theme for our sixth event. We hope Claire's post inspires you to join us in our quest to end Alzheimer's and of course join us for the party of the year, Memory Ball 2017 on Saturday, April 1st at Palais Royale. Without further ado, please read Claire's thoughts behind this year's theme of "Mind the Gap."
If you're familiar with my story you would know that my mother was a British immigrant, and if you had the chance to meet her, she wouldn't let you forget it! My mum grew up in London in the 60's which lead to her becoming quite the BritPop devotee. I grew up dancing in the kitchen with her to the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and the Kinks. Eager to go home, Christmas 2000 was the year she brought my father, sister and I across the pond. This was my first experience in England, and it was an experience I will never forget.
