Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health is seeking restaurants, retailers and other businesses to participate in “Month of Memories,” a grassroots community fundraising campaign, inviting Las Vegans to shop and dine at businesses throughout November in support of local Alzheimer’s disease resources. 

Coinciding with National Alzheimer’s Disease and Family Caregiver Awareness Month, the campaign running Nov. 1 – 30 raises funds to provide no-cost educational, therapeutic and support programming for families in our community living with devastating neurological disorders.

“The current need in Nevada is huge. We estimate that about 45,000 residents have Alzheimer’s disease and another 15,000 have other dementias,” said Dylan Wint, MD, Director of Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. “Month of Memories supports the work that we do to help care for people living with neurodegenerative diseases and their caregivers.”  

Local businesses can participate by:

  • Asking customers to make a $1 donation or round up their change at the point of sale
  • Donating a designated percentage of sales
  • Creating a special menu or item to benefit Month of Memories
  • Hosting a unique promotion or event

Participating businesses will be recognized in a robust marketing campaign, which includes: 

  • Press release distributed to local media outlets
  • E-blasts to our loyal supporters 
  • Point-of-sale signage explaining Month of Memories to patrons

Businesses are encouraged to sign up by Monday, Oct. 9. For more information and to sign up, visit
