Sir Jackie Stewart is one of the world’s most successful and loved racing drivers in history. Tragically, his wife of 40 years, Lady Helen Stewart, has been living with dementia for some years.
Driven to succeed as Sir Jackie is, the challenge of finding a cure for dementia was one too important to ignore. His Race Against Dementia Foundation is solely focused on raising funds to support highly innovative research programs. In addition to raising millions of dollars, Race Against Dementia has tapped into the R&D culture of Formula 1 in order to turbocharge the research effort.
Event Chairman, Craig Joel, reached out to DPR&Co last year to assist in bringing this cocktail event to life. Craig reached out to us again this year and we were thrilled to participate. The event was a roaring success, with over 400 guests, 19 live auction items and over $300K raised to accelerate the Race Against Dementia.
