Hope Health 7th "Celebrate Memories" Auction is August 24th

Hosted by Wequassett - Benefits Hope Dementia & Alzheimer's Services

Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services is pleased to announce this year’s Celebrate Summer Memories Auction takes place on Thursday, August 24, at the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club in Harwich, beginning at 6 p.m. The auction generates essential funding to provide information, education and support services for those living with Alzheimer’s disease, their caregivers, and the healthcare professionals and community agencies that support them.

Caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia can be a difficult physical, emotional and mental challenge that can go on for years and require special understanding, patience and skills. Specialized programs provided by Hope Dementia & Alzheimer’s Services include assessment, individual and group counseling, education, telephone support, respite care and much more. 

This evening of magnificent fun will host a silent and live auction, a gourmet menu, live music, spectacular summer views and a chance to meet like-minded friends—passionate, dedicated and determined—to help make a significant difference with this cause. Enthusiasts and supporters from all over the region attend the auction to support the Alzheimer’s and dementia cause.

“Celebrate Summer Memories Auction enables us to help more people and continue to enrich our services and programs,” said Diana Franchitto, president & CEO of HopeHealth. “Most of the care provided to people with Alzheimer’s is delivered at home by family members, and they often must seek community supportive services. We are so grateful to everyone who supports our mission and the awareness and attention this event brings to our community about this disease.”
