Raising Awareness & Funds at Paint the Night Purple

More than 1,000 attendees are expected at the 7th annual Paint the Night Purple event on Friday, February 22, 2019 at Revel Fulton Market in Chicago to help raise critical awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s disease. Paint the Night Purple brings people together from all across Chicagoland for an unforgettable evening of dancing, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and desserts.  Chicago native group – The Boy Band Night – will be returning once again as the headlining live entertainment, and the event will feature other musical guests throughout the evening as well.

“It’s one night of the year for all of us to come together with one cause in mind – ending Alzheimer’s,” says Junior Board member, Sydney Church. “It’s a night to honor and pay tribute to our loved ones, but it’s also a night of celebration and fun. “

Guests can also enter to win lavish prizes during the raffle and silent auction, such Chicago Bears and Blackhawks autographed memorabilia, air travel, tickets to sporting events and museums as well as gift certificates to salons, restaurants, fitness classes and much more. All proceeds from Paint the Night Purple benefit the Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter, and last year’s event raised more than $152,000 for Alzheimer’s care, support and research efforts.

“The event displays the passion of those affected by Alzheimer’s disease, the commitment by so many to find a cure, and the never-ending support we receive from our friends and family,” says Junior Board member, Rob Gialessas. “With the anniversary of the loss of my loved one the week before, I Paint The Night Purple because the joy and positivity the event generates is uplifting.”

Paint the Night Purple is hosted annually by the Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter Junior Board. The Junior Board was founded in 2011 to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and to take action through fundraising events, support programs, education and advocacy initiatives. Alzheimer’s has touched each one of these civic-minded young professionals in some way, and all are united by a desire to see an end to the disease.

“Paint The Night Purple is the perfect blend of having a good time and doing good for others.” says Erin Doherty, Paint the Night Purple event coordinator and Manager of External Relationships at the Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter. “It’s a unique platform for us to celebrate and honor the lives of those impacted by this devastating disease, while raising awareness and funds to fight it.”
