Research Updates


The 34th annual Rita Hayworth Gala, chaired by Karyn Kornfeld, Robin Meltzer and Daryl Simon was held on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. We were thrilled to have Willie Geist, host of NBC News' "Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist" and Co-Host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" join us as our emcee for the evening.

Gala News and Upcoming Events

Princess Yasmin Aga Khan began this event in honor of her mother, actress Rita Hayworth, who died as a result of Alzheimer's. Under Princess Yasmin Aga Khan's leadership, the 2017 event raised $2 million, and a grand total of over $74 million has been raised through the Rita Hayworth Galas. These funds, combined with other donations, have helped the Alzheimer's Association make significant progress toward our mission to eliminate Alzheimer's disease.
