On Thursday, June 12, one of Team Fox's biggest events, Tips for Parkinson’s, returns for its 9th year of guest bartending in support of Parkinson's research. Gather your friends, buy your tickets and plan to join us at the IAC HQ (555 West 18th Street) in NYC!
Established in 2006 by Team Fox member Susan Bilotta — whose mother lives with Parkinson's — the initial event brought together 100 friends in a pub on the East Side of NYC to raise awareness and funds for The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Today, Tips for Parkinson's (TFP) has grown into a highly anticipated event that annually attracts more than 700 guests and last year alone raised over $250K!
As Susan explains, "For my mother, I became a Team Fox member and supporter of MJFF. I created TFP as my own grassroots initiative with the simple idea of creating a fun-filled event, but[in the process] fundraising has become a lifestyle choice, motivated by my love for my mother and my compassion for all sufferers and their families."
Having raised a collective $925,000 over the past 8 years, Susan is both eager and excited for this year's event, which will put TFP over the $1 million fundraising mark. We hope you'll join us in celebrating this incredible accomplishment — the first within the Team Fox community — with Susan on June 12.
