Miami, Florida, December 23rd, 2019, /- Assistance to the Elderly and Residential Plaza extend their annual fundraising event’s campaign, Cuban Night for Alzheimer’s, to reach their 2019 goal of $75,000. All funds raised this year will empower the Rental Assistance Program to allow low-income older adults with memory care needs to afford rent in an assisted living environment enabling them to maintain their quality of life.

The 10th Anniversary of the Cuban Night for Alzheimer’s last November at the Donna E. Shalala Student Center at the University of Miami was attended for over 500 guests from the health industry, community, and political leaders, friends, and families of Residential Plaza’s Memory Care Program. The event raised awareness and over $65,000 to support the Rental Assistance Program for residents diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

“We understand the increasing need in our community for memory care; it can be costly and out of reach for many. Alzheimer’s is emotionally taxing for the families and financially challenging. We are committed to raising the $75,000 that we set as a goal in 2019. The funds raised will empower us to continue to fulfill our mission,” said Luisana Hung Salazar, Development Director for Assistance to the Elderly.

“We are leaning into Social Media to expand our circle of supporters and share the need with a broader supporter’s base. Making a difference in the world seems like an impossible task to accomplish. Still, we can make a difference in our community by donating today, visit: “, said Hung Salazar.
