Special Events

Memory Matters depends on two special events each year to meet budget. Approximately 30% of our annual budget is supported by program fees. The remaining 70% comes from Special Events, individual gifts, corporate donations and restricted grants.  Your help with Special Events, either as a volunteer, as a guest or both, is highly valued.

  • Annual Gala, May 7, 2019: Memory Matters hosts an annual elegant evening fundraiser to support operations each year at Sea Pines Country Club. Volunteers help with creative design, auction item solicitation, table sales, and day-of activities. We have only a limited number of tickets available, and the event typically sells out. To purchase a $200 per person ticket, please call Kari at 843-842-6688. 
  • Annual Brain Health Summit, March 12, 2020:  The Annual Brain Health Summit features the most current research and developments on brain health, gathering experts to share their knowledge with the community. It will be at Hilton Head Island Beach & Tennis Resort from 9 AM to 3 PM. Watch our homepage for more information on speakers and topics.

We welcome  volunteers with experience in developing, designing, and promoting community events.  This could include auction items solicitation, table sales, exhibit hall sales, and day-of logistical support.
