On Wednesday, October 17, AFTD (the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration) will host their annual Hope Rising Benefit at the Pierre Hotel, chaired by Donald Newhouse and co-chaired by Anna Wintour and David Zaslav.

At the dinner, AFTD will present Leonard A. Lauder with the Susan Newhouse & Si Newhouse Award of Hope to recognize his decades-long work in support of medical research. The event will feature musical performances from Hamilton original cast member Renee Elise Goldsberry and will be hosted by Paula Zahn.

AFTD works to spread awareness and raise funds for research into FTD (frontotemporal degeneration), a debilitating form of dementia that is most common in people under 60. FTD causes progressive, irreversible changes to personality, behavior, language and movement — and today there is no cure. This evening’s gala is part of AFTD’s mission to address FTD disorders.
