To kick off the month of April, we hit Palais Royale Ballroom on April 1 for the sixth annual Memory Ball.

Organized by the Alzheimer Society of Toronto’s Young Leadership Committee – an organization that is dedicated to the education of young Canadians on dementia – the event unites young professionals, community leaders and local philanthropists to raise money for the cause.
