On the afternoon of Sunday 29 October more than 100 people attended a high tea in support of the 39,600 Western Australians living with dementia and their families.
The inaugural high tea event was held at Crown Perth and celebrated the launch of a 1940’s themed calendar featuring stunning Perth models who donated their time and experience. The beautifully presented calendar honours women of all ages and the memories of those touched by dementia.
Former West Coast Eagle Glen Jakovich attended the event and shared a very personal story about his mother who lived with Alzheimer’s before her death in 2010.
Dementia advocate Diann Bates also shared her own inspiring story of living with younger onset dementia.
Thank you to Pamela Jackson whose drive and passion to help others turned the calendar and high tea into a reality.
The 2018 calendar is still available for sale and can be purchased from Alzheimer’s WA’s Perth office, 55 Walters Drive, Osborne Park. Calendars are $20 each, however no EFTPOS facilities are available. All proceeds from the sale of calendars will be donated to support Western Australians living with dementia.
