Evening of Impact Gala

The Alzheimer's Association Evening of Impact Gala brings together community leaders united in the fight to end this disease. This reception-style event gives you the opportunity to celebrate the collective impact our community has made for families in Central Ohio, and the hope we have for a future where we can achieve our vision of a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.
With the Columbus skyline as our backdrop, we will continue to build community as this event honors the lives of people living with dementia and their caregivers and raises funds to move the mission forward. We are thrilled to honor the Dierker Family as our 2022 Impact Award Recipients at this year's event and celebrate the family for the incredible impact they have made on those in Central Ohio and beyond.

On Thursday, May 12, 2022 we’re looking to our community of corporate, family and individual supporters to make an impact by joining us at The Fives Columbus.  With catering from Together & Co. and music from Honey & Blue it’s sure to be a celebration.

“We are honored to chair this year’s Evening of Impact Gala. Our goal is to raise awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association as well as the care and support they provide Central Ohio families dealing with this disease. This event is an opportunity to recognize those who are current caregivers and let them know there is help and hope through the Alzheimer’s Association. There is a lot of promise in the growing research for this disease, and possible new treatments in the future. We are excited to bring the community together at this special event to raise funds so one day we can live in a world without Alzheimer’s and other dementia.”
