SHAKING THINGS UP

A Good Time for A Good Cause

 

On May 17th, 2013, at 265 West 37th St, 17th floor, New York, NY, oil painter and member of Team Fox, benefiting The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, Justin Sonny Eagles and a group of talented artists of all sorts will be showcasing their art to help raise money for the fight against Parkinson’s.  The artist’s will include fashion designer and illustrator Caroline Berti, painter Aleksander Betko, jewelry designer and mixed media artist Jennifer (Elizabeth) Amenta, author Ondre’ Tokai and Eagles himself.  Admission will be $50., half of which will be directly donated to the Foundation.  With the admission price, guests will receive two drinks from a choice of martini, house sangria, wine, soda and water, and a variety of fresh hors d’ oeuvres ( including garlic chicken and meatballs & more).  The show will include a selection of raffles to help raise more money for Parkinson’s research.   All proceeds from the raffles will be donated to the Foundation.

This show will be in honor of Sonny Eagles’ late Grandmother, Dorothy Sunshine Beverley, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s when Eagles’ was a child, sparking his interest in helping to make a difference for people living with the disease.  Eagles wants this show to be a ‘good time for a good cause, wanting guests to enjoy the art, drinks, food, dance a little and over all have a great night while helping to speed the research process for better treatment and hopefully one day a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.

About Parkinson’s

Over five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease, a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder whose symptoms typically progress from mild tremors to complete physical incapacitation. In the United States, an estimated 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. Current treatments mask symptoms but do not alter or slow disease progression.
