The Thirteenth Annual Connoisseur's Dinner celebrated the one-year anniversary of Diagnostics Accelerator, the ADDF's program to fund innovative Alzheimer's biomarkers and diagnostic technologies. The gala recognized the program's funding partners Bill Gates, Leonard A. Lauder, the Dolby family, the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation, Jeff and Mackenzie Bezos, and others.

The event featured a preview of Sotheby's upcoming auctions, wine pairings presented by Sotheby's Wine, and our lively "Fund a Scientist" Auction, which supports the ADDF's promising Alzheimer's research.
