Night of a Thousand Lights

Thank you to everyone who supported this year’s Night of a Thousand Lights held on Thursday, May 3 at the InterContinental Hotel Cleveland.

What a wonderful evening it was! Guests enjoyed browsing and bidding on over 70 silent auction packages, tried their luck in the Getaway Raffle and enjoyed the company of nearly 400 attendees gathered in support of this important cause. The program featured Harry Johns, President and CEO of the Association.  Harry discussed the urgency of elevating the public conversation about Alzheimer's disease, the critical need for increased research funding and the importance of clinical trials. He also shared some of the many accomplishments happening both nationally and globally in Alzheimer's research, care and support standards and public policy, many of which are being led by the Alzheimer's Association.

We want to hear from you! If you attended Night of a Thousand Lights, please take a short survey  to help us improve the guest experience, and ensure we raise the necessary funds to continue our work towards our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s.
