Porridge for Parkinson's- a brunch for research
As you already know, my Mom had Parkinson's Disease and she passed away in 2017.
As a tribute, I am raising funds for research to find a cure. Porridge for Parkinson’s mission is to fund research that will identify the cause of, and a cure for, this neurodegenerative disease. This disease does not get a lot of attention but the number of people with Parkinson’s is expected to rise by more than 50% by 2030. More than 25 Canadians are diagnosed with Parkinson's every day.
On Sunday, November 3rd, my sister Jennifer is co-chairing Porridge for Parkinson's. It’s an elegant brunch (oatmeal with Scottish whiskey anyone?) featuring great food prepared by celebrity chefs Jamie Kennedy and John Horne, to name a few. We are excited to have Jeanne Becker as our host.
Funds raised will support the world-renowned Parkinson's Research Excellence Fund (led by Dr. Anthony Lang) at the Edmond J Safra Program in Parkinsons's Disease, at Krembil Brain Institute, Toronto Western Hospital, UHN. This is cutting edge research and Dr. Lang has received the Order of Canada for his work.
Please come for a fantastic brunch- Sun Nov 3rd at Locomotive Hall-Steam Whistle Brewing.
Tickets are $150 - www.porridgeforparkinsons.org.
If you are not able to attend, please consider making a donation to help find a cure for this underfunded disease. I know you are asked a lot so please do not feel obliged. Any amount is appreciated.
If you know someone who would be interested in attending or donating to the event, please forward them a link to this page.
