Gala 2024 Eng Flyer.png

Act Now Foundation recently hosted its much-anticipated annual Music & Memories Gala, a poignant event dedicated to supporting older adults living with Alzheimer's and related dementias, as well as their dedicated caregivers.

The night featured a lively cocktail hour, an exclusive trips auction, a high-end silent auction, various raffles, and an elegant sit-down dinner with live entertainment by The Time Machine Band.

One of the highlights of the evening was the presentation of the ISA Legacy Award. This prestigious accolade, shaped as a medal, was a unique and symbolic way of honoring all attendees for their tireless efforts in the battle against dementia. 

As the official program concluded, the festivities seamlessly transitioned into an exclusive after-hour party. Attendees continued to revel in the success of the evening, celebrating both the funds raised and the unity demonstrated in the fight against dementia.

Brain Health & Community Resource Fair

Saturday, June 10, 2023

The Brain Health & Community Resource Fair took place last Saturday, June 10th, at Lincoln Park in Jersey City. The Fair aimed to not only bring together various organizations, businesses, and community members to foster connections and provide valuable resources to our residents, but also to learn about the importance of brain health and aging.

 

     To make this possible, Act Now Foundation and the Hudson County Department of Health & Human Services partnered for the second consecutive year, and facilitated free transportation from senior centers, senior buildings, and city Departments of Health to reach as many older adults as possible. After all our efforts, the fair included almost 100 vendors that offered free health screenings, testing, and vaccines, and over 600 attendees!

     The Fair opened at 10 AM with a Welcome Announcement on the main stage presented by Darice Toon, Director of the Hudson County Dept. of Health & Human Services, and Act Now Foundation’s Co-Founders Kristine Allen (President) and Cary Lopez (Executive Director). Afterward, our seniors rocked their bodies with a standing yoga session with hula hoops led by Gabby Creery Wellness. In addition, the Rutgers Cooperative Extension used the Hank Gallo Community Center to present a workshop on Food as Medicine: Cooking for your Best Health, which gathered an outstanding number of interested listeners! 

     As a Dementia Resource Center, we always talk about mental stimulation as one of the pillars of brain health. For this reason, the Fair included Brain Games for all ages, including optical illusions, Stroop Tests, Memory Games, Spot the Differences, and more. The day-long event also included henna tattoos, twisted balloons, and even an Elvis Impersonator Performance!

      Act Now Foundation would like to thank everyone who attended or participated as a vendor in the fair. Because of you, we were able to spread awareness about dementia and connect the residents of Hudson County to community resources that will help them lead healthier lives. We would also like to thank our co-presenter, the Hudson County Department of Health & Human Services, and our sponsors Eisai Pharmaceutical, Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center, Horizon NJ Health, Haven Savings Bank, Hudson Regional Hospital, and Applause Home Care for making this event possible. And, of course, thank you to all the volunteers who spent their Saturday making a difference in our communities!
