DEAR FRIENDS,


It’s time for our annual Women’s Luncheon and Fashion Show! Once again, we will enjoy a fun afternoon celebrating women while raising awareness about Alzheimer’s Disease and other related dementias, and how it disproportionately affects women.

We are proud to be celebrating over 30 years of providing hands on, individualized care through our cutting-edge programs and services. Our services are tailored to each participant’s stage in the disease process and have helped over 2,000 families on Long Island. We believe that there is “life worth living” after diagnosis. The need for the LIAD Center’s programs and services continues to grow. It’s projected that by 2050, the number of people 65 and older diagnosed with Alzheimer’s may nearly triple to 16 million. Until there is a cure, the LIAD Center is here, every step of the way, to provide much-needed support and comfort to families dealing with this devastating disease.

We encourage you to review the many sponsorship opportunities that are available. Thank you for your support in helping us continue our mission.

Sincerely,

Tori Cohen, Executive Director
