Local Residents to Host Scotch & Sangria for Parkinson’s Research at Sear House in Closter, NJ, on Thursday, March 2

Proceeds From Fourth Annual Helping Hours Event Benefit Parkinson’s Foundation

WHAT:  Enjoy post-work cocktails to support the Parkinson’s cause. Parkinson’s Foundation board member, Stephanie Goldman and her fellow co-chairs are inviting their community to Scotch & Sangria, their fourth annual Helping Hours event. The evening will feature a special tasting of assorted scotch and sangria, gourmet dinner and silent auction. Proceeds benefit the Foundation.

WHO:  The Parkinson’s Foundation, led by event Co-Chairs Stephanie Goldman of Norwood, Amy Sole of Mountain Lakes and Doug Stern of Demarest, NJ. The evening is a signature Parkinson’s Foundation Helping Hours event, where friends can enjoy a night out while supporting Parkinson’s research. The mission of the Parkinson’s Foundation, formed in August 2016 by the merger of PDF and the National Parkinson Foundation, is to invest in promising scientific research that will end Parkinson’s disease and improve the lives of people with Parkinson’s, and their families, through improved treatments, support and the best care.

WHY:  Co-Chairs Ms. Goldman, Ms. Sole and Mr. Stern, formed this event in honor of their loved ones touched by Parkinson’s. Ms. Goldman adds, “There’s still no cure for Parkinson’s disease. That’s why my co-chairs and I are driven to bring our community together each year to raise more awareness and critical funds to support the Parkinson’s Foundation’s work to end Parkinson’s for the one million people in the US, who like my father, live with Parkinson’s disease.” Since 2014, the trio’s Helping Hours events have raised over $80,000 for Parkinson’s research.

WHEN:  Thursday, March 2, 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM.

WHERE:  Sear House, 411 Piermont Road, Closter, NJ 07624
