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 Parkinson’s disease. They joined
together to create the Young
New Yorkers for the Fight Against Parkinson’s committee,
a group of nearly 100 New Yorkers dedicated to advancing a
cure for Parkinson’s. Each year the committee hosts Celebrate
Spring New York, which has raised nearly $675,000
since its inception.
The event will begin at 8:00 PM with cocktails, hors
d’oeuvres, a live auction and dancing, with music provided
Brenda Black. Support levels are as follows:
sponsorships at $5,000, $2,500, $1,250, $500, $475 and $250
and individual tickets at $165.
The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation supports
research and ideas that will improve the lives and futures
of people touched by Parkinson’s. Created by William
Black, the founder of Chock full o’Nuts, a successful
New York coffee and restaurant business, PDF was
the first national not-for-profit organization to focus on
Parkinson’s disease. Since its founding in 1957, PDF has
invested $110 million in the research of leading scientists
around the world and an additional $47 million to support
education and advocacy programs.
