Celebrate Spring New York was first conceived six years ago 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 New York, which has raised more than $300,000 since its inception.
On Friday, April 26, PDF will host Celebrate Spring Boston at the Liberty Hotel located at 215 Charles Street in Boston, MA. Rehana Ashraf and Anne Greene are event Co-Chairs. The evening of cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, dancing, dessert and music by DJ Brenda Black will begin at 9:00 PM.
Support levels are as follows: Sponsorships at $5,000, $2,500, $1,250, $500 and $250; Tickets at $125 in advance and $135 at the door.
