Annual Central Coast Follies Event raises $27,500 for Parkinson Research

Share

The Central Coast Follies presented their fourth annual benefit for Parkinson's Oct 5, 6, 7 and 8th, 2006 at the Clark Center in Arroyo Grande, California. This year they were able to send $27,500 to the Parkinson Alliance for research. That makes a total donation of $70,000 for Parkinson research in the four years The Follies have presented their musical review. These funds have all been matched by the Tuchman Foundation which means 100% of our donations go to research.

We are proud of our shows that use all excellent local singers and dancers who range in age from a two year old to an 84 year old. It is truly a volunteer community endeavor. Our talented, dedicated Director, Jason Sumabat, makes the "magic" happen and the community enthusiastically supports our shows. Bernie Kautz, our Producer extraordinaire, works with another dedicated group of volunteers to make the "magic" happen, business wise. Dixie Parker is an assistant to Jason and coordinator between both groups. The Central Coast Parkinson Support Group and the Santa Maria Parkinson Support Group are an important part of our Follies Team, selling ads, making items for our opportunity donation tickets, sitting at the Parkinson tables in the lobby and attending the shows. We are blessed with a team of dedicated volunteers who are inspired to work to make a difference in the lives of millions of people who are suffering with the devastating disease of Parkinson's. We dance and sing with the hope of helping to find a cure for Parkinson's and we are a part of The Parkinson Alliance Team as we all have the same goal.
