Mountain Lakes Resident to Host Fundraiser for Parkinson's Research

Borough resident Amy Sole is inviting the community to get warm at Harvest Bistro & Bar in Closter to help fight Parkinson’s disease on Wednesday, January 22.

Guests will enjoy an evening of “Tequila & Tapas” to benefit the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF), from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Wednesday, January 22.

The event, led by co-chairs Stephanie Goldman-Pittel of Norwood, Doug Stern of Demarest, and Ms. Sole, is a PDF “Helping Hours’” fundraiser where friends can enjoy a night out together and support Parkinson’s research.

The cause is close to Sole’s heart as her late father lived with Parkinson’s.

Sole has been active with PDF for many years, serving on leadership committees for annual fundraising events for young professionals.

“After seeing how Parkinson’s disease affected my father, I want to do everything I can to help other families who are touched by this disease,” says Sole.

“I am thrilled to help lead Tequila and Tapas to benefit PDF and not only raise critical funds for research, but also encourage others to help make a difference.”

Guests of Tequila & Tapas will enjoy a special tasting of select Patrón tequilas and gourmet hors d'oeuvre stations. Tickets to attend are $125 per person, with all proceeds benefitting PDF’s research programs.

For more information or to purchase tickets to Tequila & Tapas, contact the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation at (800) 457-6676, info@pdf.org or visit www.pdf.org/helpinghours.

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects nearly one million people in the United States.

Although promising research is being conducted, there is currently no cure for Parkinson’s.
