On Monday December 16 2019, from 6-10pm, you are cordially invited to our holiday event, Elf Day at the Cabin NYC (205 E 4th Street, New York, NY), a joyful charity event in a winter wonderland, benefiting gender based brain health research. You can think of it as the charitable classy version of Santacon. Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, or Christmahannukwanzadan, we all like to put a holiday cheer on for a good cause.
You can wear your best elf-related holiday attire, red and white stripes, green, blue, a Christmas dress, a Hanukkah sweater, a snowman suit, or you can get a scrooge pass for a generous donation.
We will have plenty of elf games and quizzes that will train your brain for more fun, a silent auction for your last minute gifts, happy hour all night, cocktails, beer and mulled wine spiked with extra resveratrol for your neurons.
Did we mention that you are a helpful elf for a good cause?
Dementia and neurodegenerative diseases don’t discriminate, they have a huge impact on the entire family, and currently there is no cure. Two thirds of Alzheimer’s patients are women, and not enough past studies have focused on the gender differences. Because women tend to live longer and possess superior verbal communications, mixed-gender research studies for Alzheimer’s dementia lead to biases in the research. We are finding that there may be other contributing factors to the disease, and new studies add more evidence on biological and social factors that may affect women differently than men. We are supporting studies that look into the gender differences too, and you can make a difference.
For Elf Day, no tickets are required, but donations are welcomed, bidding at the silent auction is definitely encouraged, and spreading festive cheer is obviously mandatory. You can donate here.
Channel your inner elf with us! Ready, set, snow!!
