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 Saturday, April 15, 2023, at The National Portrait Gallery Smithsonian American Art Museum.

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 $10 million to benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. 


The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. For more than 35 years, we have provided reliable information, education and support for people with dementia and their families, increased funding for dementia research, and influenced changes in public policy. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.
