Chef Zov Karamardian, founder of the long-running and popular Zov’s Restaurants, will receive the Epicenter Award honoring her passion and commitment for creating a strong and healthy community from the Alzheimer’s Association at their Women #ENDALZ Luncheon (from 12 Noon to 2:00 p.m.) at the Fashion Island Hotel in Newport Beach on April 13th.
“WOMEN #ENDALZ celebrates the power and influence of women. By using our collective voices, we can create awareness of the impact of Alzheimer’s on our health, our families and our nation. Women are disproportionally affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Almost two-thirds of Americans with the disease are women and 65 percent of caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s are women.”
“A woman’s estimated lifetime risk of developing Alzheimer’s at age 65 is 1 in 6. As real a concern as breast cancer is to women’s health, women in their 60s are about twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s as they are to develop breast cancer. Not only are women more likely to have Alzheimer’s, they are also more likely to be caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.”
The $200 per ticket price includes valet parking, champagne reception and lunch with wine.
Zov is also conducting a cooking class and lunch on Saturday, March 24th @ 11:30 a.m. to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. It’s a “Love Your Brain” Mediterranean Menu. The full $75 ticket cost will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Chef Zov and Anne Grey, Executive Director for the Alzheimer’s Association join us.
