Tickets are on sale or Charlotte Memory Gala

CHARLOTTE – The Alzheimer’s Association – Western Carolina Chapter has started selling tickets and tables for the Charlotte Memory Gala, one of its signature fundraisers. 

The charity created the gala in 2017 as a way for Charlotte’s influential community and business leaders to enjoy an elegant evening honoring the lives of loved ones impacted by dementia and money funds to underwrite the association’s support, education, advocacy and research efforts. 

Connie and Frank Reed are chairing the 2024 event. 

The Fowler Family and Friends will be honored with the 2024 Award of Excellence for their work in the community and their ongoing support of those impacted by Alzheimer’s in North Carolina and beyond. In less than a decade, the honorees have raised more than $150,000 and participated in critical international Alzheimer’s research as study participants.

The black-tie optional event will take place from 6 to 11 p.m. May 18 at The Westin Charlotte, 601 S. College St.

Guests will enjoy a welcome reception, mission moments, auction and seated dinner, as well as dancing and musical entertainment provided by Musically Yours and The Herringbones. 

Tickets cost $500 per person. Tables/patrons levels start at $5,000. April 30 is the deadline to RSVP. Visit to reserve tickets or tables. 

“Alzheimer’s forces us to realize that memories aren’t guaranteed; to rethink our idea of success, and to appreciate the small moments – the smiles, the laughs, the love,” said Katherine L. Lambert, CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association – Western Carolina Chapter. “The Memory Gala was born from this idea and is an impactful way to care for the nearly seven million Americans whose memories are being stolen from them by this disease. We look forward to bringing everyone together for a memorable night in the fight against a disease that erases such moments.”
