Laugh to Remember

A Night of Comedy to Benefit the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brain

On Wednesday, June 5, 2024, Broadacre Financial and Columbia University will host the eighth annual Laugh to Remember, a night of comedy to benefit the Taub Institute for research  on Alzheimer’s Disease and the Aging Brain at Columbia University.

For over a century, Columbia University investigators have been engaged in pioneering neurological research.  The establishment of the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer’s Disease and the Aging Brain ratified our commitment to learning more about the origins and expressions of neurodegenerative disorders, and how we can better diagnose, treat, and ultimately even cure and prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, Huntington’s disease, Lewy body, and Frontotemporal dementias.

The Taub Institute is one of the leading centers in the world for research on Alzheimer’s disease, related dementias, and normal aging of the brain. It is a leader in the discovery of the genetic substrates of the disease and the major coordinator of international studies in the genetics of dementia. Funds raised at the event will support the efforts of Columbia’s medical teams to continue their groundbreaking work in neurological medicine.

If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Wayne at or 212-305-4896.
