Elisabeth Hasselbeck Promotes Alzheimer's Association

The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck serves as the honorary host for the Alzheimer’s Association Junior Committee, who hosted their annual Collective Consciousness Gala at Tenjune nightclub in New York City on Thursday (May 7).

The benefit raised money for research of the second-leading killing disease in the country.

At the event, I spoke with Elisabeth, who shared, “My grandfather – my dad’s dad – just recently passed away. He had a long battle with Alzheimer’s. And I think anyone that knows someone, as many of us do or know or have gone through the process, you know it truly does affect more than just the person. It’s a family disease, it is your friend’s disease. It’s so inspiring to see the young faces out here tonight to get motivated to do something and prevent and cure. I think it’s a good thing that they’re all out here. You know sometimes there is a misnomer that we don’t do anything until it’s too late, but looking out at all the young faces tonight who are willing to participate and engage for a fight is more than motivating.”
