2018 Part the Cloud Gala

Thank you to all who supported the 2018 Part the Cloud Gala! It was a magical evening, and together we raised a record-breaking $11 million for Alzheimer's research. Our team can't say thank you enough for the generosity of our community. With these additional funds, we envision being able to fund 33 research grants! We are so grateful.

Part the Cloud was an evening to be remembered thanks to the vision and inspiration of our incredible leadership team, founder Mikey Hoag and chairs Debbie Robbins and Ellen Drew. The gala was held on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, CA. Sage Steele of ESPN's SportsCenter was articulate and funny as the emcee of this remarkable evening which featured dazzling performances by country artist Jay Allen and Tony award-winning actress, singer and songwriter Idina Menzel.

The party continued into the evening as guests danced the night away at the after party hosted by the Dave Martin's House Party band. Stanlee Gatti donated the event services and delighted guests with his bright and vibrant decor. Many thanks to our guests who flew in from far and wide, including Garth Brooks, Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Kim Campbell. We also want to thank our presenting sponsor Stephen Silver and our incredible Part the Cloud Committee. We couldn't do it without you!

May 2014 Part the Cloud Gala

Actresses Brooke Shields and Virginia Madsen hosted the invitation-only gala, which raised $4 million and set a record for the largest single-day fundraiser in Alzheimer's Association history. Hoag rallied the crowd, calling on attendees to continue their action for the cause throughout the year: “Think back to the AIDS crisis. An entire community spoke up — they acted up — and Congress began to spend money. The prospect of a cure became real. We can do that, too.”
