Unforgettable Art: An Affair for Alzheimer’s
The Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter is excited to announce the 2019 “Unforgettable Art: Annual Affair for Alzheimer’s.” Unforgettable Art will take place Saturday, April 27, at University of Illinois College of Medicine at 1601 Parkview Ave., in Rockford. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.
This ever-growing event features 50 talented artists who will transform blank canvases into works of art while patrons, enjoying beverages and hors-d’oeuvres, look on. Pieces will then be auctioned off at the end of the event.
One of Unforgettable Art’s lifetime artists Siegfried Fritz, passed away in 2018. Sig dedicated the last 15 years to participating in Unforgettable Art, donating his time and talents over the years to help in the fight against Alzheimer’s.
“Unforgettable Art was very important to him, artistically and because of all of the dear friendships that he built with the other participating artists and the members of the association that made the magic happen,” Emmanuel Fritz, Sig’s nephew said. In honor of Sig- all participating artists will contribute to a blank canvas, and that unique piece of art will be given to Sig’s family.
Unforgettable Art hopes to bring in $65,000 to help End Alzheimer’s in Illinois.
Tickets are $60, or $80 for VIP tickets. VIP ticket holders receive a commemorative wine glass, preferred seating at the live auction and early access to the event. Tickets are advance sale only and can be purchased by calling the Alzheimer’s Association office in Rockford at 815.484.1300 or going to http://unforgettableart.org.
Proceeds benefit the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter. Today more than 5 million people are living with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States; someone develops the disease every 65 seconds. In Illinois alone, there are 220,000 who have Alzheimer’s and more than a half-million caregivers. Proceeds from Unforgettable Art will help support the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association and fund vital community resources.
