2016 Gala Kick-Off Reception



The 29th annual Alzheimer’s Association Chicago Rita Hayworth, co-chaired by June Barnard and Maggie Murzanski, was held on Saturday, May 7th at the Hilton Chicago. Over 820 people joined us to support the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.

We were thrilled to honor The Cantore Family with the Family Philanthropy Award, Dr. Lisa Genova with the Rita Hayworth Award and Silverado with the Corporate Award. These awardees were honored for their support and dedication to the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.

In 2017, we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Chicago Rita Hayworth Gala! The event will be chaired by Betsy and David Goltermann and take place on Saturday, May 13th. We hope you will save the date!

Princess Yasmin Aga Khan began the Gala in honor of her mother, actress Rita Hayworth, who died as a result of Alzheimer's disease. Under Princess Yasmin Aga Khan's leadership, over $69 million has been raised through the Chicago, Palm Beach and New York Rita Hayworth Galas. These funds, combined with other donations, have helped the Alzheimer's Association work toward our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease.
