About the Event

Join us Thursday, May 2nd, 2024 at 4:30 pm for the 13th annual Reason to Hope Gala. Reason to Hope is our gala-style, annual fundraising event that unites the community in the fight against Alzheimer’s. The Gala is designed to recognize community partners who join us in the fight against Alzheimer's disease, while also raising much needed funds, primarily from our corporate partners.

Collectively, The Reason to Hope Galas have raised over $1.1 million to fund crucial programs and services to help Vermonters living with dementia and their caregivers, expand our advocacy efforts on the federal and state level, plus invest in cutting-edge research worldwide.
