The children may technically be our future, but in New York society, it's really our Young Professionals.

This past Thursday, Josh Lauder and The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation's Young Professionals Committee hosted the First Annual House of Purple event at the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park.

Alissa Anderegg, Lili Buffet, Charlie Cangro, Michelle Florin, Stephanie and Ian Ginsberg, Gina Holzheimer, Chris Johnson, Gary, Laura, Josh, Katherine and Eliana Lauder, Julie Medler, Laura and Steve Toma, and Wendy Wilshin and Ron Dickerman stepped out in their most festive frocks for the occasion, which celebrated the committee's amazing work advancing Alzheimer’s prevention, drug research and development.

Curious to see who wore what?
