PDF Champion to Host 14th Annual Music for Parkinson’s Research Concert on Sunday, November 13 in Rye, NY
White Plains, NY, clinical psychologist David Eger, Ph.D., is on a mission to help end Parkinson’s through music. The 14th annual Music for Parkinson’s Research concert, which benefits PDF’s research programs, will take place on Sunday, November 13 at 3:30 PM at the Congregation Emanu-El in Rye, NY. The chamber music concert is organized by Dr. Eger and a dedicated committee of local volunteers.
Dr. Eger has been a tireless advocate for the Parkinson’s community since his diagnosis in 2000. Under his leadership, the annual concert has raised more than $500,000 for Parkinson’s research since its inception. Now a warm tradition in Rye, Music for Parkinson’s annually draws support of internationally acclaimed musicians and welcomes more than 150 guests.
Among this year’s performers are crowd favorites, the Attacca Quartet, Quartet in Residence for the Metropolitan Museum of Art and pianist Gena Raps, faculty member at Mannes College The New School of Music. Guests are invited to a wine and cheese reception following the concert.
People with Parkinson's Advisory Council Fundraising for Community Choice Research Awards
PDF’s People with Parkinson’s Advisory Council is on a mission this year to raise $25,000 for PDF's research programs.
Calling on their friends and family to help them reach their goal, funds raised will support a special initiative, the Community Choice Research Awards. These awards, chosen by the Parkinson’s community, address the very serious, but often unmet needs in Parkinson’s including fatigue and gastrointestinal function.
