Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please no advertisers. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

Parkinson's fundraiser highlights April drink events

Whether it's a fundraiser for Parkinson's research, a beer-themed chili cookoff or a chance to sample beers on First Friday, April is loaded with drink-themed events for those seeking a good time in York.

Shaken Not Stirred — April 30

Parkinson’s disease affects five million people worldwide and 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year. The disease was brought to the forefront by actor Michael J. Fox, who went public with his condition in 1998.
Since then, he’s set up The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, raising money to fund programs searching for a cure for Parkinson’s.
Later this month, the York-area can raise money for disease research by having dinner and drinks.
Shaken Not Stirred, a local fundraiser run by Working Progress and hosted by Tutoni’s Restaurant in York, will take place on April 30.
The event features signature cocktails created by Tutoni’s staff and named in honor of “celebrity shakers” with local ties.
For Kate Harmon, who co-owns Working Progress with Matthew Davis, and Tutoni’s co-owner Toni Calderone, the event holds special significance. Harmon’s father Bob Harmon and Calderone’s grandmother both have been diagnosed with the disease.
“I don’t want people just drinking The Birthday Boy (the drink named after her father),” Harmon said. “I want them to see me, see my dad and learn why this is so important.”
Sponsors are still needed for the event. If interested, email kate@letsmakeprogress.today.
If you go: The event runs from 1 to 4 p.m. on April 30. Tickets can be purchased at fundraise.michaeljfox.org/shakennotstirred. Cost for the event is as follows:
  • $10 for entry and appetizers
  • $20 for entry, appetizers and a cocktail shaker
  • $75 for entry, appetizers, a cocktail shaker and a family-style dinner at Tutoni’s.
