Parkinsonís Disease Foundation to Host Tequila & Tapas Event for Parkinsonís Research on Wednesday, January 22

Norwood, NJ, resident Stephanie Goldman-Pittel is inviting her community to get warm at Harvest Bistro & Bar in Closter and help fight Parkinson’s disease. Guests will enjoy an evening of Tequila & Tapas to benefit the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF), on Wednesday, January 22 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM.

The event, led by co-chairs Doug Stern, Demarest, NJ, Amy Sole, Mountain Lakes, NJ, and Mrs. Goldman-Pittel, is a PDF Helping Hours’ fundraiser where friends can enjoy a night out together and support Parkinson’s research. The cause is close to Mrs. Goldman-Pittel’s heart as her father currently lives with Parkinson’s disease. A PDF Board Member since 2010, she has led several annual galas and fundraising events for PDF.

“My family and I would love nothing more than to see an end to this terrible disease,” says Mrs. Goldman-Pittel. “I cannot think of any other organization like PDF that follows through on its mission to end Parkinson’s with such personal and caring action. We hope that Tequila & Tapas not only raises needed funds for Parkinson's research, but also encourages 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.

PDF President, Robin Elliott, added, “At PDF, we are inspired by Mrs. Goldman-Pittel and her co-chairs Amy Sole and Doug Stern who are creatively engaging their community to get involved in the Parkinson’s cause. Their efforts will help advance our mission to support the research and ideas that will improve the lives and futures of the nearly one million people across the country currently living with Parkinson’s.”
