Founded by Princess Yasmin Aga Khan in honor of her mother who died as a result of Alzheimer's, the first Rita Hayworth Gala was held in New York in 1984. The event expanded to Chicago in 1987. Combined, the Rita Hayworth Galas have raised more than $78 million for the cause.
Join Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, Gala Chairs Barbie and Bruce Taylor, and the Gala Steering Committee in tackling the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only disease in the top ten causes of death without a way to prevent, cure, or slow its progression. Now, more than ever, your support will make a difference, as every 65 seconds, someone in the United States develops the disease.
