About the Event

Over 700 corporate, philanthropic and political leaders gathered at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC on May 2 for the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter’s inaugural Brain Ball. The event raised $1 million to benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association and increase awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and its devastating toll on America’s families.

The Alzheimer's Association National Capital Area extends its deepest thanks to founding co-chairs Liz and Tom Donohue, honorees Terry and Paul Klaassen, the Brain Ball steering committee and young professionals group, and our 2014 Brain Ball Sponsors for making this event a success.
