THE ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION ILLINOIS CHAPTER JUNIOR BOARD PRESENTS PAINT THE NIGHT PURPLE
More than 1,000 attendees are expected at this year’s Paint the Night Purple event 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, bites, desserts, and live entertainment. This year, pianist, Eric Lobo and the Chicago native group, The Boy Band Night will be entertaining the crowd. All proceeds from the event benefit the Alzheimer’s Association Illinois Chapter for the advancement of Alzheimer’s care, support and research.
Paint the Night Purple is the Junior Board’s annual fundraiser. For the third year in a row, this event is co-chaired by sisters Tanya Iovino and Kiki Kouris who serve as members of the Junior Board’s Leadership Team. Their Grandmother, Kiki Kotsiviras, passed away from Alzheimer’s disease in 2011 and both women have devoted their time to advocating for a cure. Through the efforts of the Paint the Night Purple Planning Committee and Junior Board members, the event is sure to be a memorable night with ground breaking results which will not only raise funds to help advance research but a night which serves as a celebration for the progress being made to help those who have been impacted by this disease.
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.
