The 3rd Annual Food, Wine, & Maybe Tuscany Raised Proceeds to Support Parkinson’s Disease Research
KINGSTON, N.J., November 26, 2019—On Thursday, October 24, 2019, over 100 supporters gathered at the Cobblestone Creek Country Club in Lawrenceville, NJ, for the 3rd Annual Food, Wine, & Maybe Tuscany, one of our Team Parkinson events, to raise proceeds to support Parkinson’s disease research.
Highlights of this year’s event included food and wine provided by 13 local NJ and PA restaurants. For the third year in a row, event attendees had the chance to enter a raffle to win a trip to Italy for a 7-night stay in Tuscany! Congratulations to Susan P., the winner of this year’s trip. The winner of the raffle drawing also received four airfare vouchers and may choose from one out of the 11 beautiful villas in the Tuscan countryside.
The evening included Bret Parker, as the guest speaker. Bret Parker inspired event attendees with his story about how he completed the World Marathon Challenge, over a decade after he received his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis at the age of 38. He finished seven marathons on seven continents in seven days, and he spoke about his incredible journey and why it was important to him.
The Parkinson Alliance would like to express our gratitude to all guests, sponsors, and supporters for making the event possible. This year’s sponsors included our Platinum Sponsor, Berkshire Bank. Because of everyone’s generosity, our third year for this event was another success.
