Honorees

The New York Rita Hayworth Gala honors individuals, families and companies who show their support of and dedication to the fight against Alzheimer’s disease through their fundraising, care and volunteer efforts.

Rita Hayworth Award

Michele and Larry Herbert

Michele and Lawrence Herbert, reside in Palm Beach and New York and are on a mission to fund research that will identify Alzheimer’s in women at its earliest stages. They recently committed a substantial gift to create the Michele and Larry Herbert Younger-Onset Alzheimer’s in Women Fund under the auspices of the Alzheimer’s Association Women’s Alzheimer’s Research Fund. This Fund will support critical research into gender vulnerabilities in Alzheimer and why woman are disproportionately ravaged by this disease.

Michele Herbert is a former dancer, model and talk show host. She has been on the New York Rita Hayworth Gala Steering Committee since 1987, and has chaired the event three times.

Lawrence Herbert is the founder and former chairman of Pantone, Inc., the world's premiere color standards company and color authority. He has been the creative force behind developing a variety of color systems which have become the standards for global communication of color in the printing, publishing, packaging, graphic arts, paint, plastics, coatings, computer, film, video, textiles and fashion industries.

Michele and Larry continue to be committed benefactors of many cultural institutions and health charities. They are grateful for the love and support of their entire family.

The Champion Award

B. Smith and Dan Gasby

B. Smith and Dan Gasby have been married for over 23 years. Together, they have decided to share their first-hand experience of B.’s diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer’s with the public in order to bring awareness to the disease. They recently co-wrote a book, Before I Forget, which shares themes of love of family, life, and hope, and provides readers with lessons on how to deal with the day-to-day challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.

B. is a restaurateur, supermodel, magazine publisher, celebrity chef, and nationally known lifestyle maven. In addition to Before I Forget, she has written three highly acclaimed cookbooks as well as hosted the television show “B. Smith with Style” for over a decade. From being one of the first supermodels, to owning three successful restaurants, her many talents are obvious.

Dan’s background as a television producer gave him experience in television, marketing and production and he is Chairman of B. Smith Enterprises, Ltd. He also hosts a radio show alongside B. called The B. Smith and “Thank You Dan” Show.

B. and Dan are committed to fighting Alzheimer’s and are not giving up. For that reason, we salute them in their efforts to spread awareness.
