Over 18 years ago, an extraordinary fundraising event was established in Washington, DC by the late Ellen Proxmire to elevate awareness of the need for improved care and to provide support for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Her passion for this cause was personal as her husband, the late Senator William Proxmire of Wisconsin, battled Alzheimer’s disease for more than 10 years.
One of the many highlights of the evening is bestowing the Senator William & Ellen Proxmire Award, which recognizes a national figure who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership in increasing public awareness of Alzheimer’s disease.
