Background

This is the sixth year and 12th Art Show that we have had for the Alzheimer Society of BC to raise funds and to create awareness of support in the community. It is very exciting to be working with GardenWorks at Mandeville to put on this show. We are pleased to support the Alzheimer Society because both of our immediate families had members with the disease.  Wendy’s brother-in-law was only 52 when diagnosed!  His last few years after diagnosis were very difficult for him and her family.  Audrey’s mother also developed the disease at a very young age and Audrey was a caregiver for many, many years. We have experienced first-hand how hard it is on the person and their family and we understand how hard it is to find help in the community.  At our shows we provide information on support available within the community.

Thank you for your support,

Wendy Mould & Audrey Bakewell
