About the event

It only takes one breakthrough to change a life.

Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Elvis Presley, Lady Gaga, Neil Armstrong, Steve Jobs. You know the names because they pushed against the odds and made breakthroughs in science, art, discovery and technology. And all it took was one breakthrough. One significant moment in time. One moment when everything worked for became reality. Here at the Alzheimer's Association we believe in breakthroughs. We believe in the power of perseverance and hope. We believe each and every one of us has a time for a breakthrough moment, which is why we are hosting our first annual Breakthrough Benefit. When we come together in support of the Alzheimer’s Association mission we make breakthroughs in awareness, research, and care and support. It only takes one breakthrough to change a life. Join us for an evening of music by local artists and inspiring stories from those impacted as we strive to make breakthroughs in Alzheimer's awareness and research.
