Brilliant Challenge Inspires Light of Day Foundation
As Parkinson’s Awareness Month comes to a close, we’re happy to report that the Irving G. Brilliant Research Challenge has reached its goal of $100,000 for research! Mr. Brilliant will double it all. Not only that, you can still double your impact by donating to the new Light of Day Foundation Parkinson’s Research Challenge.
Mr. Brilliant Inspires Bob Benjamin and Light of Day Foundation
On March 30, PDF announced the beginning of a challenge led by Mr. Brilliant, of Brooklyn, NY, to inspire philanthropy for Parkinson’s. He will match funds raised during April, putting a total of $200,000 toward research.
But you can still double your gift. His goal to inspire philanthropy led Bob Benjamin, who leads the Light of Day Foundation, to let us know that he too would like to challenge the community.
If PDF raises $100,000 by Saturday, June 30, Mr. Brilliant and the Light of Day Foundation will also double that amount.
