The Murphy Family
Dan, JoAnn, Dan and Jim
After his beloved grandmother, Nancy, passed from Alzheimer’s disease in 2011, Dan joined the Rita Hayworth Gala Young Champions Committee and immediately made an impact on the group. His brother, Jim, joined soon after and they both are leading the charge in getting a younger generation involved with the Alzheimer’s Association. Their parents, JoAnn and Dan, became Champion Sponsors of the Rita Hayworth Gala in 2012 and their annual support since that time has truly made a difference for the cause. The Murphys show us that as Alzheimer’s affects multiple generations of a family, it takes the whole family joining together to fight for a cure.
JoAnn and Dan reside in North Barrington, Dan lives in Park Ridge, and Jim lives in Chicago. In addition to supporting the Rita Hayworth Gala, they also champion the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Saint Viator High School in Arlington Heights, Trinity High School in River Forest, the Kelly Cares Foundation at the University of Notre Dame and the American Cancer Society.
