Honorees

The New York Rita Hayworth Gala honors individuals, families and companies who show their support of and dedication to the fight against Alzheimer’s disease through their fundraising, care and volunteer efforts.

2018 Champion Award

The Johnson Family

In memory of Elizabeth (Libet) Ross Johnson, the Johnson Family is honored to receive the Champion Award. Born in New Jersey to Betty Wold Johnson and Robert Wood Johnson, Jr., Libet was raised in Princeton before traveling the world and eventually settling in New York City. She was known for her zest for life and her dedication to philanthropic efforts. She was especially proud of founding Sovann Komar, a non-profit organization for orphaned and abandoned children in Cambodia. She lived by the credo that when you were given much, you had a duty to give a great deal in return. Libet lost her lengthy battle with Alzheimer's in 2017 but her children, Lily, John-Lansing, Annabel, Oliver, and William continue to share in her legacy of good will. The Johnson Family has been an avid supporter of the Alzheimer's Association and we are grateful for their partnership in our fight against this disease.
