“I have been involved with Dancing Stars since 2017 when I danced and have served as co-chair for the event for 2018, 2019, and 2021”, added Meta Adler. “I volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association in remembrance of my Grandfather, Leopold Adler II, who suffered from the disease and for all others affected by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia”, added Adler.

“I continue to support the Alzheimer’s Association because of their mission and commitment to finding a cure and providing immediate relief for families”, added Catherine Cooper. “Each year, I see how our efforts truly make a difference in people’s lives.  My family has been directly impacted by the effects of Alzheimer’s, so it has always been a special cause that means a lot to me”, added Cooper.

Dancing Stars of Coastal Georgia will take place on Saturday, May 21, 2022at the Savannah Convention Center in Coastal Georgia. In 2021, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Dancing Stars of Coastal Georgia went virtual with a past Dancing Stars of Coastal Georgia remembrance and raised more than $69,000.

“I danced for the Alzheimer’s Association’s Dancing Stars of Coastal Georgia in 2018”, added Missy Kolgaklis Taylor . I danced in remembrance of my grandfather, Paul Barton who passed away from Alzheimer’s and a neighbor who was affected by the disease. I was a committee member in 2019 and a co-chair in 2021. We are looking forward to our in person event in 2022”, added Taylor.

More than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease – the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, more than 16 million family members and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In Georgia alone, there are more than 150,000 people living with the disease and 334,000 caregivers.

“I’m very excited, and honored, to have not only one but three highly experienced 2022 Co-Chairs for Coastal Georgia’s Dancing Stars event”, added Stephen Holland, Dancing Stars of Coastal Georgia event manager.  “They bring such a strong affinity to the noble and worthy mission of the Alzheimer’s Association, and as we approach our 10-year anniversary of Dancing Stars here in Coastal Georgia, 2022 is gearing up to be the best one yet”, added Holland.
