100% of funds raised by Keep Memory Alive support the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health’s work in advancing brain science for the benefit of our community.
Patients, families and the community often tell us they don’t know Cleveland Clinic is a nonprofit, yet it is only through gifts from the community that the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health can offer no-cost educational programming and caregiver support to the Nevada community, as well as amplify our research and treatment efforts.
You can help us foster a brain span that matches our lifespan.

Volunteer with us
Ask our volunteers why they donate their time and talents and you’ll receive an array of inspired responses. Some give in honor of care that loved ones have received at Cleveland Clinic Nevada; others serve while currently in our care. Some are drawn to our center after retiring from healthcare careers; at the other end of the spectrum, we have students gaining volunteer experience towards a future career.
Many simply enjoy being part of the vibrant environment and making an impact on the community we share.

A Weekend in Tahoe to Keep Memory Alive
Keep Memory Alive Chairman and Founder Larry Ruvo and his wife and Keep Memory Alive Board Vice Chair, Camille Ruvo, along with the McGill family, resurrected the Glenbrook, Nevada rodeo in 2000 after it had been discontinued in 1965.
Now, each summer this iconic rodeo features barrel racing as well as bull and bronco riding. Carnival games, a face painter and a watermelon eating contest delighted kids, while a Western-style barbecue and a silent auction captivated the young-at-heart.
Saturday afternoon, some guests enjoy a picnic at the home of Financier and Philanthropist Michael Milken and his wife Lori Milken. Saturday evening, the Ruvos open their beloved Shakespeare Ranch to world-renowned restaurateur Emeril Lagasse, who saddles up in the kitchen to prepare an extraordinary dinner. Guests enjoy the best of his signature cuisine accompanied by a selection of fine wine and spirits.
100% of the funds raised throughout this memorable weekend support the work of Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
Keep Memory Alive Event Center
From the mind of world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the breathtaking Keep Memory Alive Event Center, located on our Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health campus, is as iconic as it is unique.
The event center is available for rent by the public, and a portion of revenue generated supports the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
