Celebrate Spring New York

Young New Yorkers for the Fight Against Parkinsonís Committee and

the Parkinsonís Disease Foundation

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

The Young New Yorkers for the Fight Against Parkinsonís committee of the Parkinsonís Disease Foundation (PDF) held its seventh annual Celebrate Spring New York at LAVO located at 39 East 58th Street in New York City on Wednesday, April 2, 2014.   Over 300 supporters of the Parkinsonís Disease Foundation and Young New Yorkers raised more than $90,000.  Proceeds from the evening will benefit PDFís CŰtť Clinical Genetics Initiative, which supports research to identify and understand the role of genetic markers in Parkinsonís disease.

G. Pennington Egbert III, Gregory and Barbara Romero, Jonathan E. Romero, Jr., and Missy Egbert Sheehan and William B. Sheehan were the Co-Chairs.    W. Alexander Budney, Andrew S. Gustin, George and Peggy Hebard, Adam and Kim Wolfberg, and Darren and Michele Wolfberg were the Vice-Chairs. 


Celebrate Spring New York was founded by G. Pennington Egbert III, his sister Missy Egbert Sheehan and their close friend Georgina B. Schaeffer whose fathers both lived with Parkinsonís disease.  They joined together to create the Young New Yorkers for the Fight Against Parkinsonís committee, a group of nearly 100 New Yorkers dedicated to advancing a cure for Parkinsonís.  Each year the committee hosts Celebrate Spring New York, which has raised nearly $600,000 since its inception.


The event began at 8:00 PM with cocktails, hors díoeuvres, and dancing with music provided by DJ Brenda Black.


The Parkinsonís Disease Foundation supports research and ideas that will improve the lives and futures of people touched by Parkinsonís.  Created by William Black, the founder of Chock full oíNuts, a successful New York coffee and restaurant business, PDF was the first national not-for-profit organization to focus on Parkinsonís disease.  Since its founding in 1957, PDF has invested $100 million in the research of leading scientists around the world and has committed an additional $42 million to support education and advocacy programs.
