Raising the Stakes, Raising Funds

Raising the Stakes 2010 photo montage

On November 10, 2010, more than 200 guests “Raised the Stakes” for Parkinson’s at Capitale in New York City.  Guests enjoyed games of chance, such as blackjack, and competed to win exciting prizes.  After a gourmet buffet dinner, premium open bar and time on the dance floor, the lucky winners were announced — taking home prizes that ranged from airline tickets to a front row spot at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!  PDF thanks event co-chairs Jose Cruz, Amy Sole, Peter Dorn, Jeffrey Zygler and Dan Spanton and the host committee for their hard work in making this event a success.  View photos of this event at
