The ADDF held its 4th Annual Fall Luncheon & Symposium: Hope on the Horizon: New Drugs for Alzheimer’s Disease at The Pierre in New York City on September 17, 2013. The luncheon raised more than $759,000 for Alzheimer’s drug research and related programs.
Bonnie Pfeifer Evans and Alice Shure presented the Charles Evans Award to Liz and Randal Sandler. The Sandlers announced a $1 million challenge grant, calling on other supporters to make a pledge—at any level—to help fund clinical trials. The Luncheon concluded with a lively and insightful conversation between Dr. Howard Fillit, Executive Director and Chief Science Officer of ADDF, and Dr. Jeffrey L. Cummings, Director of the Cleveland Clinic’s Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, moderated by Paula Zahn.
