We wanted our visits to these communities to follow the model of our annual Baltimore Health Festival, which we put on for the first time in 2014: a free day of overall health education, with a particular focus on colon cancer screening and prevention, along with entertainment, fun, and food for the entire family.

Eighth Annual Memories Gala 2016
Held once again at the magnificent Martin's Valley Mansion in Cockeysville, Md., this year's edition of our annual gala was a rousing success! The food of the Grand Global Gourmet Safari was impressively displayed and delicious, the Palovations electrified the crowd, and everyone in attendance had a fantastic time. Thanks to all who donated items for our silent auction, our enthusiastic volunteers, our generous sponsors and our perennially gracious host Marty Resnick, whose staff was professional and supportive, as always.
