The Alzheimer’s Association had their 28th Annual Rita Hayworth Gala. The event took place downtown at the Hilton Chicago. This eventful night attracted over 865 guests who were all passionate about this organization’s mission. The theme at this year’s gala was, “The Best is Yet to Come.”

Attendees were able to enjoy some cocktails and live music from Frank Lamphere’s Rat Pack Jazz Band. The night followed with a three-course dinner, program, silent and live auctions, and Orchestra 33’s Party Gras Band. The event raised over $1.3 million and of the proceeds from the gala went to the Alzheimer’s Association. The organization is dedicated to finding a way to eliminate the disease through research and enhance the care and support for those affected.
