Alzheimer’s Association’s Chocolate Jubilee

Tony Hawk, professional skateboarder, entrepreneur and philanthropist, was the featured guest speaker for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Chocolate Jubilee. Hawk shared personal stories of his mother's current struggle with Alzheimer's disease. The Chocolate Jubilee was held at the MGM Grand and showcased chocolate exhibitors from around the metro Detroit area. Proceeds from Chocolate Jubilee directly supports critical care and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors and the 500-plus attendees, the event raised over $1.125 Million.
