Creative pieces from CLC artists raised thousands of dollars for the Colorado Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association at this year’s Memories in the Making gala art auction held earlier this month.
Memories in the Making is an amazing program that utilizes art therapy to connect with those who live with dementia. CLC has two formal programs with the Colorado chapter, one at Someren Glen Adult Day and the other at Clermont Park.
George Reish, who participates in the Adult Day program at Someren Glen, created a wonderful piece titled Buffalo. It was paired with a piece entitled Last One Standing Wins by professional artist Margaretta Ceasar for the live auction portion of the event and sold for $5,250!
All in all, we had half a dozen art pieces in the art auction. We are proud of all of our artists and the great work being done in our programs to support people living successfully with dementia.
"I made some good friends after moving to Clermont Park. My family loves it. They have also met a lot of good people here."
"Clermont Park is a great place to live. You can participate as much or as little as you want in community activities. You can meet as many people as you like, and they are generally open, so I’ve made a lot of friends in the short time I’ve been here. "
