The Ritz Carlton in Washington DC was the place to be on Tuesday, May 2024! This was not just any lunch but the 14th Annual Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation’s Great Ladies Luncheon.

Founders Elise and Marc Lefkowitz and Carolina Herrera’s Wes Gordon put on a spectacular event. They honored two remarkable women, Kristin Rae Cecchi, and Charlie Lefkowitz Crowley, for their incredible support in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

Guests at the luncheon were treated to a feast for the eyes and the palate. The highlight was a stunning fashion show by Carolina Herrera, showcasing elegant spring outfits. The clothes glittered almost as much as the conversation around the tables.

ADDF’s CEO Mark Roithmayr detailed how the event raised over $800,000 for research.

Why does this matter to you? Well, it’s more than just a fancy gathering. It’s about community, about coming together to support a crucial cause. It’s about making a difference in the lives of millions affected by Alzheimer’s.
