Princess Yasmin Aga Khan
welcomed supporters to a Summer Cocktail Party at Anne and Jay McInerney
's Water Mill home, in anticipation of the upcoming Alzheimer's Association Rita Hayworth
Gala on October 24, at Cipriani 42nd Street
. Gala Co-Chairs Karen Kornfeld, Robin Meltzer and Daryl Simon co-hosted the soiree, which brought out the Hamptons Old Guard as well as the New. The Princess has helped raise $72 million with the Rita Hayworth Alzheimer's Galas, in New York, Palm Beach and Chicago
, that she founded 34 years ago in honor of her mother, felled by Alzheimer's.
"This year we are privileged to honor yet another inspiring woman who took on the fight against Alzheimer's when she lost her mother to the disease," Robin Meltzer told supporters who filled the sweeping lawn. "Nina Garcia
will receive the Champion 2017 Award." Colombian born fashion icon Garcia is Creative Director at Marie Claire magazine
and known for being a Project Runway
Judge. "I lived with this disease very closely when I lost my mother in 2004," said Garcia, "so, this is very close to me."

"Alzheimer's is the only disease among the top ten causes of death in America that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed," said Daryl Simon. "But there is hope. Just last week, thousands of the world's leading dementia investigators gathered in London for the Annual Alzheimer's World International Conference. Within the very first few days there were reports of existing news and developments important for all of us here. Research has found that healthy older adults who follow the Mediterranean Diet - which is focused on eating fruits and vegetables, whole grains and beans - lowered their risk of dementia by a third. The Lancet Neurology Commission reported that more than 1/3 of global dementia cases are preventable by addressing modifiable risk steps such as hearing loss, smoking and low social contact. Based on these two reports, making lifestyle changes at any age reduces your risk and can change the trajectory."
