Emory University’s Goizueta Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center will host its 10th annual A Family Affair, its largest annual fundraiser, Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. at the Atlanta History Center in Buckhead. Tickets are $800 per person and $1,600 per couple. The visibility created by A Family Affair has helped raise awareness of the need for research of Alzheimer’s and mild cognitive impairment, and has helped generate funding from the Goizueta Foundation for $59.9 million for Alzheimer’s research and the James Cox Foundation for $27.9 million for mild cognitive impairment.
