"It is time to step up our game, as the number of Alzheimer's diagnoses continue to rise, so must our efforts," said Christina Lepri, YPalz Special Events and Blondes vs. Brunettes chair. "YPalz is excited to continue to engage young professionals with the Cleveland Area Chapter and the Community.  We have welcomed many new members to our team and hope to continue that growth. This event will bring together 150-200 young adults for a crucial cause, while creating wonderful memories for years to come."

Proceeds from the event will benefit Cleveland area families who depend on the Alzheimer's Association for assistance in coping with the responsibilities of caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer's disease. The organization offers personal consultation, provides support services, educational programs, resources, safety services and referrals, at no expense to the families. Funds also assist the organization in its efforts to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research.

"We hope that with the success of the Remember When Soiree and our other signature events, we can help eventually fulfill the Alzheimer's Association's vision for a world without Alzheimer's," said Lepri.

Over the last several months YPalz has been hard at work growing membership and aligning their goals with the Cleveland Area Chapter's strategic plan. The group also conducts monthly networking and planning meetings and produces their annual fundraising event "Blondes vs. Brunettes," a women's flag football game held each spring at St. Ignatius. 

"The Remember When Soiree will round out our yearly activities and help break the 'cabin fever' we Clevelanders tend to catch in the winter time!" said Lepri.
