The Foundation of Wesley Woods is proud to play an important role in Emory Universityís on-going work to find ways to treat, care and cure those afflicted with Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís diseases. Since its inception, our annual Heroes, Saints, and Legends Awards Dinner and Gala has raised more than $5 million to fund innovative research to support these critical efforts. We are privileged to be working with physicians, scientists and caregivers who are world leaders in their fields, and we are asking you to partner with us to harness their talents to make these debilitating diseases a thing of the past.
On Saturday, March 15th, at the Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead we celebrated three remarkable Georgians over sixty years of age whose incredible careers and contributions continue to enrich our community. The Foundation was proud to honor Reverend Doctor Don Harp, Minister Emeritus of Peachtree Road United Methodist Church, Dr. Linton Hopkins, Professor Emeritus of Neurology, and Ms. Ingrid Saunders Jones, retired VP of Global Community Connections for the Coca-Cola Company and Chair of The Coca-Cola Foundation. We also presented the Key to a Cure award to Mrs. Lonnie Ali, in recognition of her tireless efforts to raise awareness and find a cure and treatment for those afflicted with Parkinson's Disease.
