Join us on Friday, May 3, 2024 at the Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC along with influential and respected corporate, civic and philanthropic leaders to lead the fight against Alzheimer's disease and other dementias!

Ten years ago, a group of corporate, civic and association leaders saw an opportunity to address the impact of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias in our community. Together with the Alzheimer's Association, the Brain Ball was introduced. This annual event has raised more than $10 milliion for critically-needed care and support programs and cutting-edge research.

In this last decade, we have made tremendous strides in expanding partnerships, creating new avenues of service and support for our community, and driving exciting discoveries in research of new treatments. In celebration of these achievements, it is in this era of progress and promise that we proudly re-introduce this special event as the Alzheimer's Association Vision Gala.

With your support, we will continue to bring help and hope to our community. And together, we will continue moving closer to achieving our vision of a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.
