SATURDAY, MAY 22, 2021




Each year, the Chicago Rita Hayworth Gala illuminates the devastating impact of Alzheimer's and all other dementia on multiple generations. The effects reach far beyond the person living with the disease, forever altering the lives of grandparents, parents. siblings and children. On May 22, 2021, please join us for a virtual event to honor family and friends who have been touched by Alzheimer's and other dementia. Together we will join those leading the fight to advance care, support and research.
