Legacy of Love

Center for BrainHealth

This Valentine’s Day, Sunday, February 14, the Center for BrainHealth is honoring Emy Lou and Jerry Baldridge at Legacy of Love. They are the 2021 recipients of the prestigious Legacy Award, given each year to individuals whose vision and dedication enables the Center for BrainHealth to empower people to unlock their brain potential. For the past 15 years, the Baldridges have poured their hearts and energy into BrainHealth as part of their lifelong mission of championing children’s causes and providing resources to inspire people from all walks of life to take advantage of their brain’s fullest potential. Legacy of Love will be celebrated virtually in 2021, in the comfort of celebrating supporters' homes with a royal dinner delivered by Darren McGrady, who was former chef to Queen Elizabeth II, Diana, Princess of Wales, Princes William and Harry, and who cooked for five U.S. Presidents. There will be a toast to love in celebration of the Baldridges with pink champagne, and do not be surprised if they dance the night away as the honorees are known to do. The gifted and generous honorary chairs are Jane Smith and Dee Wyly and the admiring dinner chairs are mother-daughter duo, Mary Bloom and Laura Bloom Gordon.
