Honorary Chair, Mark Novota

Six years ago, Managing Partner Mark Novota and Event Chair Richard Morgano embarked on a shared goal to host a fundraiser to support the needs of people who are effected by Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. The Celebrate Summer Memories Auction is the culmination of their quest to help raise money to support patients and families experiencing Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. 

This year’s auction event was extra special because of special guest, Greg O’Brien. Greg is a writer, editor, investigative reporter and publisher with more than 40 years of newspaper and magazine experience and he has Alzheimer’s disease. Greg was diagnosed several years ago with Early Onset Alzheimer’s after a horrific head injury “unmasked” a disease in the making. Working off a cognitive reserve and journalistic grit, Greg wrote On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s, offering a first-person perspective on how to fight this demon of a disease.  

Greg is doing more than most could to bring awareness to this disease. His story is inspiring.

This evening of magnificent fun hosted a silent and live auction, a gourmet menu, live music, spectacular summer views and like-minded friends — passionate, dedicated and determined to help make a significant difference with this cause.
