Hi! By introduction, We are  Lucy Smoltz and Lila Epstein, co- president of Aces for Alzheimer’s. This is Lila’s first year as co-president and we are so excited to have her join the team.  Lila is a junior at Mamaroneck High School and currently working on brain disorder research for her Original Science Research project. 

We are absolutely delighted to have our amazing Bowling Event this year and welcome all, new and current participants to our fundraiser!  Our main mission will always be to raise money in the name of Alzheimer's research, awareness, and preventative lifestyles. In addition to hosting our Bowling Night, we will also be raising awareness in our school setting to help spread the knowledge of this serious disease in hopes of change. 


We're Jackson Owen and Sam Smoltz. We are sophomores at Mamaroneck High School in Mamaroneck, New York.  Our families, like so many families, have been deeply affected by Alzheimers.  This horrible disease has taken family members and friends close to us. Aces for Alzheimer's was founded by our sisters, Jane and Abigail in 2015.  Now they are off to college we are thrilled to take over this important work and make it our own!  We have ambitious fundraising goals and community outreach projects planned for this year.  We are striving to hit our goal of raising $70,000 for our cause in 2020!

Meet The Team's Over the Years

About us

Hi!  By way of introduction we are Sam Smoltz and Jackson Owen, those who have attended prior Aces events probably recognize us as part of the hardworking staff of volunteers helping set the stage putting the “fun” in fundraising and now it is our honor to take the reins from Jane and Abby and build on the incredible foundation for raising donations and awareness for Alzheimer’s they have built over the past 5 years, with a particular focus on prevention.  While we also enjoy tennis, our true passion is games – trivia, cards, boardgames, computer games, you name it we want to play! So in the spirit of combining our personal passion with how we advance research and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease families we are changing the focus of our fundraising events from the tennis court to gaming tables, but the mission remains the same, namely raising money for Alzheimer’s research and increasing awareness of the disease and the potential for preventative lifestyle decisions that are best made sooner than later. In addition to hosting Aces gaming events, we will also be working with our local schools and community resources to get the word out about Alzheimer’s and arm our local communities with the tools and knowledge to help blunt the impact of this terrible disease through awareness and early action.
