A “must see,” calendar professionally produced and using Royal Oaks Retirement Community residents as the stars is being sold to support memory care programs in Phoenix.

With the opening of our new memory care center, we hope this calendar raises money and awareness for Alzheimer's, said Kendra Eberhart, CEO.

Royal Oaks Sun City, AZ http://www.royaloaks.com A “must see,” calendar professionally produced and using residents at Royal Oaks Retirement Community in Sun City, Arizona (http://www.royaloaks.com) as the stars is being sold to support memory care programs in Phoenix.

Residents reminisce about a beloved pet, a first car, their wedding days, holidays, vacations, births of children and grandchildren and even favorite movies. So Royal Oaks decided to re-create movie posters, using residents as the movie stars. Residents were professionally costumed, coiffured, and photographed and then put into ‘the scene.’ We thought we’d end up with 12 great posters but the project kept growing.

In all, 15 images were turned into a 15-month calendar (January 2015-March 2016); a preview of the calendar can be seen at http://www.royaloaks.com, where they can be purchased. 100% of the proceeds will be given to memory care charities. The movie posters re-created include, among others, Mrs. Doubtfire, Tootsie, Gone With the Wind, Mary Poppins, Sound of Music, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Pretty Women, and even The Full Monty.

With the opening of our new memory care center, The Friendship House, this project spearheaded by Royal Oaks residents will be a way to raise money and awareness for families across the country struggling with Alzheimer’s or memory loss. And the end result is a piece of collectible art.

100% of all proceeds from the calendar go to memory care charities in the greater Phoenix area. Visit http://www.royaloaks.com to see a preview and place an order.
