UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging Foundation

Since our founding over 50 years ago, Ball Homes has made it a priority to partner and support various organizations and charitable causes. We actively and enthusiastically partner with organizations that work to improve the quality of life in the communities where we live and work. We would like to share information about some of the non-profit organizations that have impressed us with their commitment to serve, their success rates, and their overall willingness to take on difficult tasks and provide services to those who need them.

The University of Kentucky's Sanders-Brown Center on Aging was established in 1972 and is one of the original 10 National Institute of Health (NIH)  Alzheimer's Disease Centers. They conduct research, education and outreach, and clinical programs on healthy brain aging and neurodegenerative disorders. According to the director of Sanders-Brown Center on Aging, the ultimate goal of the SBCoA is to develop innovative and outstanding research while ensuring a more rapid rate of progress toward new therapies to delay or prevent age-related brain disorders, so that our human volunteers, patients and caregivers become the beneficiaries of their advances in knowledge.

Each year, the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging holds a benefit dinner to raise money for ongoing research, education and outreach programs. The twenty-seventh annual dinner, held on Monday, November 11, will feature Dr. Ronan Tynan as the honored guest and keynote speaker. Dr. Tynan is a well-renowned Irish tenor singer, Gold medal Paralympic athlete and admired physician.

As a sponsor of An Evening with Irish tenor Dr. Ronan Tynan, we're honored to be able to partner with the Foundation on such an important cause. For tickets to this special event, contact the Foundation office by calling 859.323.5374 or email
