EACH OF US HAS A STAKE in research on Alzheimer’s disease, because statistics show many of us will fall victim to this debilitating scourge as we age. The 25th anniversary Rita Hayworth gala at the Hilton raised an impressive $1 million. Welcoming guests were chair June Barnard and Alzheimer president Harry Johns. Honored were veteran supporters Joan and Paul Rubschlager who have personally pledged more than $1 million to fund research. In Illinois alone, 200,000 are afflicted.
