Alzheimer’s Association : Rita Hayworth Gala

The 34th annual Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala will be held on October 24th at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City to raise funds for Alzheimer Association care, support and research programs. More than 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s and by 2050 this number could rise to 16 million. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S., and the only cause among the top ten that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed

Princess Yasmin Aga Khan began the Rita Hayworth Gala over three decades ago in honor of her mother, actress Rita Hayworth, who passed away from Alzheimer’s. Under Princess Yasmin Aga Khan’s leadership, the events in New York City, Chicago and Palm Beach have raised over $72 million for the Alzheimer’s Association. These funds, combined with other donations, have helped the Alzheimer’s Association make significant progress toward their mission to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease.
