The Greater Wisconsin Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association hosted the inaugural Purple Gala and Tap for A Cure event Thursday evening at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton.
The Purple Gala is a formal dinner, while Tap for A Cure features 35 different beer and spirit samples from craft brewers.
The money raised will help fund services for families dealing with the disease.
