Paintings & Pairings

Thursday, October 15, 2020

7:00 to 8:00 pm
Networking begins at 6:30 pm

Our ninth annual Paintings & Pairings event is going virtual!
While we'll miss seeing you in person, our upmost priority is everyone's health and safety. But it doesn't mean we'll miss out on the fun!

The virtual event will feature interactive networking, suggested hors d’oeuvres and wine pairings, an online auction, and the Excellence in Memory Care Award. Enjoy the best parts of Paintings & Pairings - networking with Insight friends, getting the last bid on that perfect auction item, and supporting our mission - all from the comfort of your living room!

Tickets will be available in September.
Until then, learn more, submit your award nominations, and review sponsorship opportunities below!


Excellence in Memory Care Awards

Insight Memory Care Center's Excellence in Memory Care award recognizes programs and services that are models of excellence and positively impacting memory care in our community. We will be recognizing the winner of our fifth annual award at this year's event. View our previous award winners.

We've added a new award this year! At this year's event, we will also be presenting a special COVID-19 Care Response Award. So many have gone above and beyond to serve our community during this time, and we want to recognize your efforts in providing quality care during the pandemic.

We are currently accepting nominations for both awards until August 7th. Please complete the nomination form for an individual or organization you feel is positively impacting memory care in Northern Virginia. Questions? Please contact Robin McGlothin at or 703-204-4664.



Sponsorship Opportunities Available!

We invite you to become an event sponsor of the 2020 Paintings & Pairings event! Insight is a nonprofit adult day health and resource center, and we rely on the generosity of others like you to support our vision of a community where those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments can achieve the highest quality of life. Help us meet our mission, while also gaining great exposure for your organization as an event sponsor! Due to COVID-19 the event will be virtual, and the need for your support is greater now that Insight has pivoted to provide new virtual programming. Please contact Robin McGlothin for more information.


About the Event

Paintings & Pairings began in 2012 as a smaller gathering of Insight supporters who came together to enjoy the creative pursuits of our day center participants. Our art therapy program had just begun, and we saw the event as a wonderful way to highlight our participant’s talents. All of the paintings were for sale, along with a few tempting raffle item packages. And of course, what would an evening be without a little food or drink? We welcomed our guests with delicious hors d’oeuvres that were paired with chef recommended wine selections for an extra treat. And thus Paintings & Pairings was born, as we celebrated Insight through art and wine.

The event has grown each year, from 100 attendees in 2012 to nearly 400 last year! With all the growth, you’ll still see many of the original elements included in the event each year. Paintings include participant artwork, along with the works of local artists who are connected to our center and our cause. We have also expanded the raffle into a full silent and live auction, providing even more fun – and friendly competition! – during the evening. Pairings still welcome you, albeit in a much different way this year. We will be sharing fantastic hors d'oeuvres recipes and wine pairings leading up to the event; gather your ingredients to make the night of, or celebrate with us weekly as we count down to October 15th!

Even with the event being held virtually this year, what hasn’t changed is that all the proceeds from the event ensure families and our community are getting the support and care they need when faced with a dementia diagnosis. Thank you to so many that have celebrated with us from the beginning and we welcome those attending Paintings & Pairings for the first time this year!
