In a picturesque setting, this special event will feature a cocktail hour serving Constellation Brands liquor, Sagaponack Vodka, and VIDE Premium Canned Cocktails and a farm-to-table dinner experience while bringing awareness and support to a disease that affects more than 6 million Americans and more than 11 million caregivers. After impacting  both of their families, Daryl and Irwin made it their mission to help fight Alzheimer’s and dementia. Alzheimer’s Association President and CEO Harry Johns will share updates on the latest in Alzheimer’s research and the evening’s Mission Moment speaker Michelle Florin, will speak on her late mother’s battle with younger-onset Alzheimer’s.

The 2019 inaugural Fork It Alzheimer’s event, helped fund four research grants, including two in New York, as well as supported the local efforts of the New York City and Long Island Chapters of the Alzheimer’s Association’s. These funds were particularly critical during the pandemic when the community depended on the Alzheimer’s Association more than ever before.
