Memory Ball 2014 “Dancing Stars” Gala
Baltimore’s premier black tie gala/dance competition will return by popular demand! With ABC2 News Anchor Jamie Costello returning as emcee, the evening will feature a cocktail reception, full-course gourmet dinner, dancing to live music by Highway Star and a showcase of local ballroom and Latin talent.
The event’s highlight, the “Dancing Stars” competition, will take place among individuals and couples chosen for their leadership in the community and their support of the Alzheimer’s Association. Many of them also have personal connections to Alzheimer’s disease.
The Dancing Stars will perform before a panel of judges that includes Maryland First Lady Katie O’Malley, Debbie Phelps (director, Baltimore County Public Schools Foundation), Memory Ball 2013 Fundraising Champion Jane Sewell (executive director, Union Mills Homestead Foundation), Stan Stovall (news anchor, Baltimore WBAL-TV 11), and Vincent M. Lancisi (artistic director, Everyman Theatre).
They will vie to win the Judge’s Choice Trophy for the best technical skill and the You’re Our Star Trophy for raising the most money for the Alzheimer’s Association. Dancers can earn votes online at www.alz.org/maryland before the event and by the audience at the Ball: $1/vote.
Event co-chairs are Susan Boltansky Mann (long-time Memory Ball committee member and community volunteer with a family connection to Alzheimer’s disease) and Deborah Gisriel Bittar, M.D. (pediatrician with Main Street Pediatrics, whose mother suffers from Alzheimer’s disease).
Proceeds will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association’s many programs and services, as well as raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, which now affect more than 86,000 people in Maryland.
