To raise money, increase awareness and support research for a Parkinson’s Cure
Parkinson's disease is a movement disorder that is chronic and progressive, meaning that symptoms continue and worsen over time. If we are not vigilant in our effort to find a cure, this disease will continue to destroy the lives of hundreds of thousands. That is why we have dedicated our lives to bring awareness and raise money to fund research for a cure.
There is an estimated one million individuals in the US live with Parkinson's disease. Many think Parkinson's only affects the elderly, but there is a growing number of diagnoses for people under 50 years old.
"In the United States, 60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s disease will be diagnosed in this year alone."
How it works?
We host three to five events throughout the calendar year. From festive dinner auctions to vintage fashion shows, we want to provide a fun and lively opportunity to not just raise money for Parkinson's research, but show that we are stronger than the disease and triumph through the midst of pain.
With all of the money we raise, we donate 100% of the proceeds to incredible non-profits that are truly making a difference. Currently there is no cure for Parkinson's. The only there can be one though is through research and that requires money!
One of our favorite non-profits to donate to is the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Unlike many disease nonprofits, the Michael J. Fox Foundation puts most of its energy into research. Of every dollar it spends, 89 cents go to research. They've now funded over $450 million in Parkinson's research!
