On Saturday, October 5, 2019, Connecticut Advocates for Parkinson’s (CAP) will hold our fourth biennial Gala to raise funds in support of outreach programs and a new wellness/ community center dedicated to People with Parkinson’s Disease (PWP). The Gala, to be held at the Aqua Turf in Southington, will include dinner, live music and a silent auction.
The new Parkinson’s Center of Connecticut will support education, exercise, community and healing arts to allow PWP to better manage their disease and take charge of their daily well being. The Center will be an inclusive safe haven, both emotionally and physically, which will encourage PWP to share experiences and support one another. It will provide educational support specific to PWP families and caregivers enabling them to better understand current and future needs for their loved ones. The Center will also include a clinical advisory committee to help with outreach to the medical community to educate physicians regarding the services available to their patients. We will make this a reality - with your help.
To do this, your support is critical. We are well respected in the Parkinson’s community for our efforts to make a difference both in wellness, and in research. Our organization exists with the desire to no longer be needed (by finding a cure) - but to do everything in our power to help those with PD while we are waiting.
With your help we hope to raise in excess of $100,000 at this event. We welcome and encourage your support. We are currently accepting donations, and will begin ticket sales later this year.
Thank you for your willingness to support our cause.
