Excitement Builds for PDF's Annual Fundraiser

Friends and supporters will once again gather at the Pierre Hotel in New York City for the Parkinson's Disease Foundation's (PDF) annual black tie gala event, "Bal du Printemps," on Thursday, May 19, 2005. Guests will join together in the grand tradition of raising funds to support PDF programs and research grants, as well as to honor outstanding members of the community for their work in the fight against Parkinson's. The evening will include cocktails, dinner, dancing and a silent auction.

The PDF Board of Directors and Gala Chairs Margo Catsimatidis, Karen Burke Goulandris, M.D., Ph.D. and Isobel Robins Konecky are proud to announce that the chair of this year's event will be Dr. Judith Sulzberger, a physician, author and long-time friend of PDF. Dr. Sulzberger will join the PDF Board of Directors and Gala Chairs in presenting The Lifetime Achievement Award to Page Morton Black, Chairman of the PDF Board, and The Page and William Black Humanitarian Award to Lucien J. CŰtť, M.D., Department of Neurology, Columbia University Medical Center.
