Parkinsonís Disease Foundation to Host Celebrate Spring Boston on Friday, April 11 at The Liberty Hotel

The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) will hold its second annual Celebrate Spring Boston at The Liberty Hotel located at 215 Charles Street in Boston, MA, on Friday, April 11 from 9:00 PM to 12:00 AM. Proceeds from the evening will benefit PDF’s research programs.

Rehana Ashraf, Kate Evans and Anne Greene are the Co-Chairs. Ms. Ashraf and Ms. Greene founded Celebrate Spring Boston last year to raise funds for research in honor of those lost to Parkinson's and those living with it, including both of their fathers. Inspired by PDF’s annual signature Celebrate Spring New York event, they joined together to engage young professionals in the Boston area to the cause. In its first year, Celebrate Spring Boston raised $42,000 and welcomed 200 guests.

The event will begin at 9:00 PM with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dancing, music and a silent auction. Support levels are as follows: Sponsorships at $5,000, $2,500, $1,250, $500 and $225; Tickets at $125 in advance or $135 at the door. Sponsorships and tickets may be purchased in advance at

The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation supports research and ideas that will improve the lives and futures of people touched by Parkinson’s. Created by William Black, the founder of Chock full o’Nuts, a successful New York coffee and restaurant business, PDF was the first national not-for-profit organization to focus on Parkinson’s disease. Since its founding in 1957, PDF has invested $100 million in the research of leading scientists around the world and has committed an additional $42 million to support education and advocacy programs.
