On a beautiful spring evening in May, guests mingled on the deck of Carol and Andrew Golden’s home before and after ParkinSong 2012. The Parkinson Alliance and the Philadelphia/Delaware Valley Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) were the beneficiaries of the fifth ParkinSong benefit concert.
The concert featured performances by Laura Cantrell and Ana Egge, each of whom charmed and captivated the sell-out crowd. Congressman Rush Holt attended the concert and addressed the audience. We appreciate his ongoing support of the Parkinson’s community.
Guests enjoyed wine, dessert and good company – all for two important causes. Wine was donated by No. 153 Restaurant in Rocky Hill and desserts were donated by Chambers Walk Catering and Café in Lawrenceville.
ParkinSong 2012 is the brainchild of Rob Litowitz, Debra Frank, and Carol Golden, to honor the memory of their mother, Selma Litowitz, whose spirit continues to inspire this effort to help find a cure for the disease that took her life. This is the fifth ParkinSong collaboration between the Litowitz family and The Parkinson Alliance. The siblings, Rob, Deb & Carol, were delighted to add a new dimension to the event by teaming with the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America. One of Selma's grandsons inspires this new and exciting partnership.
“Nothing I’ve ever done has been more rewarding than working with The Parkinson Alliance and now, CCFA.” said Rob Litowitz, also the emcee of the evening.
The Parkinson Alliance is grateful to ParkinSong for its continued commitment to supporting Parkinson’s research. We are pleased to partner with CCFA, another organization that is meaningful to the Golden/Frank/Litowitz families.
