Actress Jane Seymour, known for her role as a frontier doctor, came to town to serve as the mistress of ceremonies for the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation’s inaugural Hope on the Horizon dinner at the Art Institute of Chicago (111 S. Michigan). Chaired by Nancy and Steve Crown and Leonard A. Lauder — with a special performance by Glen Campbell who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2011 — the event brought out 200 local heavy-hitters. Partygoers made the evening a homerun smash, raising nearly $1.5 million to help fund innovative drug research to combat the disease.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
