This October 25th will mark the 28th Annual Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala.  “Hollywood Glamour” is the theme this year, which is appropriate, given that the Gala is led by Founder and General Chair Princess Yasmin Aga Khan – Rita Hayworth’s daughter.

On Monday, Khan opened up her beautiful apartment to host a kick-off cocktail party, which was underwritten by Van Cleef & Arpels, and meant to increase public awareness for the millions of people who suffer from this terrible disease – to say nothing of their families.  Anne and Jay McInerney are chairing the event, which is also honoring Somers Farkas and Home Shopping Network CEO Mindy Grossman.

Among the other guests and Steering Committee members who showed their support for the cause – and oogled the Van Cleef jewelry on display – were Amy Fine Collins, Alexandra Lebenthal, Chele Chiavacci, Deborah Norville, Sharon Bush and Patty Smyth, who will be performing the night of the Gala.  Exciting!
