Thanks for another great event!
We hope you'll join us again next year!
Triphammer Wines & Spirits hosted the 7th annual “An Evening to Remember” event to benefit the Alzheimer's Association of Central New York on Wednesday, December 4th, 2013 from 5:30-9:00pm. The gala was held in the Grand Ballroom of the Trip Hotel Ithaca (formerly the Clarion Hotel), located at One Sheraton Drive, Ithaca NY. 100% of ticket and auction proceeds from this event went directly to the Alzheimer's Association of CNY.
The event once again offered guests extensive food and wine tastings from local restaurants and wineries, as well as a beer garden with a variety of craft beers. There was also a silent auction, and live music by local talent. All participating restaurants, distributors, musicians, and other sponsors can be viewed on the Sponsor Page link at the bottom of this page.
This event was founded by Julie Crowley (owner of Triphammer Wines and Spirits and Ithaca Coffee Company) in 2006, when her mother Patricia Crowley was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Julie has said that her mother, who passed away in June of 2012, would be, "so proud of the support in our community for this worthy cause. I am grateful to the local organizations who have become involved with our Gala-as sponsors and volunteers.”
In 2013 the Gala raised over $41,000 for the Alzheimer's Association of Central New York. Of those proceeds, a portion was used to provide scholarships to Certified Nurse Assistant and Home Health Aid licensed professional caregivers in Tompkins County to complete the Foundations of Dementia Care Training Series offered by the Alzheimer's Association, Central New York Chapter.
So many of us are directly affected by this disease, either through a family member or friend, the gala committee hopes you find value in this event and continue to be a part of this very worthwhile cause. Community support of this event is essential. For more information and to help spread the word, you can “Like” and “Share” the gala Facebook page.
