Alzheimers’ Drug Discovery Foundation Hosts Great Ladies Luncheon And Fashion Show In DC

The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) will host its third annual Great Ladies Luncheon and Fashion Show on Thursday, April 11, 2013. The luncheon is co-chaired by Leonard A. Lauder and Elise and Marc Lefkowitz in collaboration with Saks Fifth Avenue.

Elise Lefkowitz describes how the memory of her mother drew her to this charity and event. “My mom, Estelle Gelman, was a very stylish lady who loved fashion and charity. This event is a perfect compilation of these two elements. ADDF donates 100 percent of all the money they raise to the scientists and pharmaceutical companies conducting research on Alzheimer’s drugs. This is an amazing opportunity to be part of a cure for one of the worst diseases of our time.”
