Event History: Celebrate Spring was first conceived in 2008 by G. Pennington Egbert III, his sister Missy Egbert Sheehan and their close friend Georgina B. Schaeffer.  The three, whose fathers both lived with Parkinson’s disease, 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 in New York City, which has raised more than $750,000 since its inception.
