The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our driver as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and as we continue to pursue our mission, today and in the longer term. Based on the guidance from local public health agencies, the Chicago Rita Hayworth Gala originally planned for May 9, 2020 will be postponed to a future date.
Letter from the Gala Chairs
We deeply appreciate all of your many contributions, your resilience in these challenging times, and your relentless dedication to the mission of the Alzheimer's Association. Alzheimer's disease does not stop even in the midst of this global pandemic, and we will not slow down our efforts toward a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.
Barbie and I are committed to staying on as Chairs for the Chicago Rita Hayworth Gala. Even though we will not be able to celebrate with you this spring, we need your support to continue our important work in providing Alzheimer's care and support and accelerating research. We look forward to continuing planning and celebrating "The Greatest Moment on Earth" with you all soon. Thank you again for all that you do and we hope that you all continue to stay healthy and safe.
