Young Professionals Also Join the Fight to Raise Funds for
the Alzheimer’s Association
March 25, 2009


(WASHINGTON D.C.)  George and Trish Vradenburg return to co-chair The Alzheimer’s Association National Gala for the sixth consecutive year.  Joining them as Gala Co-Chair is Thomas C. Nelson, Chief Operating Officer of AARP.  The Gala will be held on Wednesday, March 25, 2009 at the National Building Museum, Washington D.C.


The Alzheimer’s Association National Gala raises significant funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s disease. Currently, as many as 5.2 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and this number is estimated
to grow to as many as 16 million by the year 2050.  In Washington D.C. alone, more than 10,000 have Alzheimer’s disease.


The Vradenburgs have chaired the Gala since its inception in 2004 helping
to raise more than $6 million for Alzheimer care, support and research.  In addition to their work with the Gala they continue to collaborate with the Alzheimer’s Association to engage political figures including U.S. Secretary
 of State Nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton and Senator Susan Collins, who have served as co-chairs of the Bipartisan Senate Task Force on
Alzheimer’s disease. 


Co-Chair Nelson has served on the Gala’s benefits committee for the past two years. As a result 15 new companies have been introduced to this event and have generated more than $200,000 in revenue. 


This year the Vradenburgs and Nelson will join the Alzheimer's Association in introducing the new Young Champions Award, honoring a young professional who demonstrates commitment to the Alzheimer’s cause through philanthropy, volunteerism or advocacy.  The Sargent and Eunice Shriver Profiles in Dignity Award for caregiving and the Ronald and Nancy Reagan Research award will also be presented at the Gala.


For more information about the Alzheimer’s Association National Gala or to order tickets, call the Alzheimer’s Association at (202) 638-8673.
