Raising the Stakes

On Wednesday, November 10, 2010, the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) held its annual Raising the Stakes at Capitale located at 130 Bowery in New York City.

Proceeds from this exciting and fun-filled evening will help PDF continue its vital work of funding promising scientific research.

300 guests enjoyed a evening of playing various casino games, a delicious buffet dinner, live music and dancing and a chance to win exciting prizes contributed by Bose, Macy’s, Dyson, Keurig, The Daily Show, Steve Madden, the New York Knicks and the New York Sports Club. The evening began at 7PM with a cocktail reception.

Event Co-Chairs were Jose Cruz, Peter Dorn, Dan Spanton, Amy Sole and Jeffrey Zygler. Mr. Cruz summed up his commitment to the cause: “My involvement stems from the fact that my grandmother has Parkinson’s. I see what she goes through every day and wanted to help her and others by contributing time and energy to PDF. I think this event is a great way to raise money for a fantastic organization that helps so many people.”
