Help our cause by contributing to our fundraising efforts.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.


The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our driver as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and continue to pursue our mission, today and in the longer term. 

Given the evolving nature of COVID-19 and based on the guidance from the San Diego Health Department and CDC, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Imagination Ball scheduled for Friday, March 27th. 


This is a disappointing decision for everyone involved, but the hard work and support of our gala committee, donors and sponsors is greatly appreciated and recognized. Importantly, we are already looking at a new dates for the Imagination Ball and will share the new date as soon as possible. 



The Alzheimer's Association San Diego/Imperial Chapter is inviting  San Diego County community leaders and businesses to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for the more than 60,000 neighbors affected by this disease by joining us at our inaugural Imagination Ball which will take place on March 27, 2020 at the Del Mar Country Club.  The Willy Wonka inspired evening will feature a silent and live auction and dancing to the sounds of Atomic Groove.  Your support will allow the Alzheimer's Association to continue providing care and support for those affected by Alzheimer's disease today and fund innovative treatments and diagnostics that will get us one step closer to our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease.
