On November 14, 2006 the stars came out in support of Alzheimer's research adorned with diamond jewelry from WhiteFlash.

Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, daughter of film legend Rita Hayworth, is a brilliant star in the fight against the disease which took her mother. On November 14 she shined her brightest in diamond jewelry from at the annual Rita Hayworth Gala; the world's most successful fund raising event for Alzheimer's Disease research. Princess Yasmin wore the "Dimoda 9 Mesh Bracelet" featuring over 9 carats of tiny sparklers in 9 dancing rows ($19,000). The ring was a 5 carat 'A Cut Above' Hearts & Arrows diamond in platinum "Champaigne Pave" ($160,000).

Donna Dixon, wife of actor Dan Akroyd, looked splendid in a new " Signature W Necklace" and unique "Princess Earrings" sporting a pair of blinding 5 carat Princess-cut diamonds ($310,000). All told, Princess Yamin and Ms. Dixon will set the room ablaze in over a half-million dollars of Whiteflash diamond jewelry. in association with the Mark Kearney Group also donated two "Dreams of Africa" conflict-free diamond pendants to the Gala's silent auction for a total of over $10,000. The Dreams of Africa program was launched in August: is donating 100 percent of profits from sales of a designer range of diamond jewelry and other merchandise to the victims of conflict diamonds in Africa. Whiteflash has partnered with Nobel Laureate Betty Williams' charity, the WCCCI, to fund relief for children with no red tape or industry obstacles in the way.

Since 1985, the Rita Hayworth Galas have raised more than $42 million for Alzheimer's disease research and support programs.
