Since opening its doors in 2009, the center has helped bring five new treatments for multiple sclerosis and the first Alzheimer’s treatment to be fully approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in more than 20 years to market, while providing 116,200 visits to no-cost educational, therapeutic and support programming.

“There are nearly 6,000 lives currently in our care, and all of them have benefitted, in some way, from the funds raised at this event, whether it’s getting access to a new treatment or help with transportation to and from their appointment,” said Dylan Wint, M.D., director of the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. “We are so grateful to this incredible lineup of performers who are lending their voice to support families that are or will be impacted by neurodegenerative diseases in the future.”

Renowned chefs Wolfgang Puck, a supporter of Keep Memory Alive since inception,and Evan Funke of the acclaimed Mother Wolf at Fontainebleau Las Vegas, will create exclusive dishes for the gala with each course expertly paired with wines selected by master sommeliers from Southern Glazer’s Wine, Spirits & Beer of Nevada.
