The Parkinson’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works to advance research and care that improves the lives of those living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), hosted its 12th annual “Celebrate Spring New York” fundraiser at PH-D Lounge.
Founded by Penn Egbert, Georgina B. Schaeffer and Missy Egbert Sheehan, this year’s event successfully raised $150,000 to support the foundation’s mission. More than 200 young professionals, caregivers and local business leaders enjoyed cocktails, dancing, a live auction and a night of music featuring DJ Brenda Black.
“Celebrate Spring brings out an energetic and altruistic group of people who are committed to supporting those living with Parkinson’s disease,” said John Lehr, president and chief executive officer of the Parkinson’s Foundation. “We are thankful for people like this who generously donate their time and money for the well-being of others. It’s because of them that the Parkinson’s Foundation can continue to advance research.”
Event co-chairs included: Scott Caputo, Penn Egbert, Missy Egbert Sheehan and William B. Sheehan, Jr., Andrew Gustin, George and Peggy Hebard, Josh and Melissa Raskin, Jonathan and Katy Romero, Edward M. Vietor, Adam and Kim Wolfberg, and Darren and Michele Wolfberg.
