Join us to elevate the profile of Alzheimer's and its devastating toll on families and raise funds for cutting-edge research and critical support services for individuals, families and caregivers.


Throughout the pandemic, the Alzheimer's Association has focused on the health and safety of our constituents, volunteers, donors, and staff, as we work together to advance our mission. Considering the recent uptick in COVID positivity rate in our state, along with the fact that breakthrough cases are occurring more frequently in vaccinated individuals, the Association strongly encourages volunteers and event attendees to be vaccinated and in addition have a negative COVID test prior to attending irrespective of your vaccination status. At-home tests are readily available at your local pharmacy and should be done within 24 hours of the event. 

We are continuously monitoring the positivity rates and at this point in time we will not be collecting information regarding proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test however your willingness to complete a test prior to the event will give everyone peace of mind. In keeping with local regulations, we will not require a mask mandate for the evening of the Gala however guests are welcome to wear them. Hand sanitizer and disposable masks will be made available. Lastly, we strongly encourage any guests that are feeling ill the night of the Gala to refrain from attending. Let's all do our best to protect each other, our loved ones, caregivers, and people with dementia both at the event and in our communities.

The Alzheimer's Association Brain Ball brings together influential and respected corporate, civic and philanthropic leaders to lead the fight against Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. This year's event will be held on Friday, May 6, 2022, at The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C.  

The Brain Ball was launched in 2014 by the Alzheimer's Association and founding chairs Liz and Tom Donohue to elevate the profile of Alzheimer's and its devastating toll on America's families and caregivers facing the daily challenges of the nation's sixth-leading cause of death. Since its inception, the Brain Ball has honored leaders in the fight to end Alzheimer's and raised nearly $9 million to benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
