The New York Rita Hayworth Gala Young Leadership Committee (YLC) formed to bring together a diverse group of civic minded young professionals individuals looking to modify the social perception of Alzheimer’s, engage young adults in awareness and support the work of the New York Rita Hayworth Gala in affiliation with the Alzheimer’s Association. These leaders are dedicated to raising awareness about Alzheimer’s and related dementias to a generation who many not be as familiar with the statistics and devastating effects of the disease. This awareness is accomplished through events, education and support to further the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
YLC members join some of our country’s most influential business, social and philanthropic leaders in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease by assisting the steering committee with the planning and fundraising of the New York Rita Hayworth Gala.

Attracting more than 700 guests, the New York Rita Hayworth Gala celebrates and honors medical research and programs in the causes, treatment, prevention and cure of Alzheimer’s disease. Since inception, the New York and Chicago Rita Hayworth Galas have raised more than $61 million to support the Association’s work. The 31st annual New York Rita Hayworth Gala will be held on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at the Waldorf=Astoria.
