The 2015 Part the Cloud Luncheon will be held on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 at the Sharon Heights Golf and Country Club. The luncheon will feature remarks by neuroscientist and New York Times best-selling author Dr. Lisa Genova. Still Alice, the first of Dr. Genova's best-selling books about characters dealing with neurological disorders, tells the story of a Harvard professor who suffers early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Still Alice has been adapted for film and is slated to open in theaters in January.
Part the Cloud is continuing the conversation to advance research and understanding of Alzheimer’s disease. Founded in 2012, Part the Cloud has raised over $6 million for Alzheimer’s research. With 100% of the proceeds from Part the Cloud going directly to Association research efforts, Part the Cloud is helping to support some of the most innovative research in Alzheimer's prevention.
On May 3, 2014 Part the Cloud hosted its second black-tie gala and it was a record breaking evening. The evening raised $4 million, making it the largest one-day fundraiser ever for the Alzheimer's Association! Our guests came together to speak up, reach out and take action to make the prospect of a cure a reality. The evening featured appearances by Brooke Shields, Virginia Madsen and our featured performer Chris Isaak — their energy and compassion further contributed to the unbelievable vitality of the evening.
This event raises awareness and inspires attendees to join us in tackling the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, the only disease in the top ten causes of death without a way to prevent it, cure it, or slow its progression. Our goal is to educate, fundraise and to accelerate critically needed Alzheimer's research as well as raise awareness about this terrible disease.
