Amazing Place Book Launch Party

The October 13th Book Launch party was a tremendous success, with over 140 friends and supporters attending. The courageous Amazing Place participants and families featured in the book were honored with great fanfare!

CELEBRATING AN AMAZING 20 YEARS BREAKS RECORDS!

This year's Amazing Place 20th Celebration at River Oaks Country Club, held in late September, raised over $740,000 this year to go towards the operations, programming and scholarships at Amazing Place. We are indebted to the Chair, Dan Dinges, CEO at Cabot Oil and Gas, the emcee Melanie Lawson and Honorees, Mary Lou and Charles Hall, all of whose lives have been touched by dementia. We are so grateful to all who attended and/or donated to this very special event.
