“There is not one day that goes by that I don’t think of Alzheimer’s and all neurodegenerative diseases that take away one of the most important parts of who we are as women. I am the co-founder and vice chairman of Keep Memory Alive, which supports the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brian Health. I am responsible for a fundraiser called “Power of Love”. Each year celebrity chefs cook, fine wine is tasted, entertainment from around the world is enjoyed and a live auction is conducted that raises millions of dollars each year since 1996. I run a rodeo fundraising weekend in Northern Nevada each summer, where the local cowboys come to show off their awe-inspiring horse and bull riding skills. Emeril Lagasse comes to cook and legendary musical talent come to life and entertain. I just started a program locally called “Penny for your thoughts”, where locals can leave their loose change in stands throughout Las Vegas. This is a community outreach as well as a fundraising effort…letting folks know that every penny counts!”
