The Roskamp Institute's 3rd Annual Grey Matters (GM3) An Illuminating Success

Coconut Telegraph

More than 450 guests filled the Ritz-Carlton ballroom for the sold-out third annual Grey Matters Symposium on Alzheimer’s research, benefiting Sarasota’s Roskamp Institute and Neurology Clinic. Its mission: to conduct research for developing safe and effective new drug therapies to treat Alzheimer’s and other neurological diseases. Keynote speaker Kimberly Williams-Paisley, actress, New York Times-bestselling author and an Alzheimer’s awareness advocate, delivered a heartfelt speech about her mother, who passed away in 2016 after a long battle with dementia. During the “Neon for Neuroscience” Cash Call, an anonymous donor agreed to match donations up to $25,000, which encouraged attendees  to raise an avalanche of glow sticks in the darkened room in support of The Institute. Altogether, the event raised more than $166,000 for medical research.
