Chicago Rita Hayworth Gala

May 4, 2019 | 6:30 p.m.

The 32nd annual Alzheimer’s Association Chicago Rita Hayworth Gala, underwritten by Rolex, will take place Saturday, May 4, 2019 at the Hilton Chicago. This year’s gala theme “The Key to Our Future,” is inspired by Paris’ world-famous Pont des Arts (the Love Lock Bridge) and will bring together advocates and supporters who are passionate about unlocking a world without Alzheimer’s disease.

The Rita Hayworth Gala was started more than 30 years ago by Princess Yasmin Aga Khan to pay tribute to her mother, legendary Hollywood actress Rita Hayworth, who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 1987. Galas take place annually in New York and Chicago and throughout the years have collectively raised more than $76 million in support of the Alzheimer’s Association.

The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
