Bandon Tokunaga knows a thing or two about families suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. When Brandon’s beloved father, Nelson Tokunaga, died at just 60 years old of early onset Alzheimer’s, Brandon vowed he would share what he discovered with others to ease their pain and offer support and hope where none seems possible. Because Brandon is a talented painter, he chose art as the best vehicle for him to raise awareness, offer support, and raise money to work toward a cure. Now there is food, wine, music, a silent auction, and of course the art. This year marks the ninth year of Forget Me Not: Art Against Alzheimer’s. It takes place at The Village at The Oaks, 61 Broad Street in San Luis Obispo, on Friday, August 26 from 5 – 8 p.m. This is an outdoor event and all are welcome. For more information, call Laura DeLoye with the Alzheimer’s Association at (805) 342-0956 or Brandon Tokunaga at (805) 431-3765.

Featured artists include Alexis Arnold, David McDonald, Sarah Mikenis, Christopher Pate, Linda Sormin, Connie Martin Trevino, John Trevino, Amy Vensel, and Garet Zook. Admission to the gallery is free. For a schedule of exhibits and hours of operation, go to cuesta.edu/student/campuslife/artgallery/or call (805) 546-3202.
