“While we are pleased with the successes of Concert for a Cure for the past six years, we are ready to try something new that isn’t dependent on the weather. We are very excited to announce “A Night Out” and have a fun night while raising money to find a cure for Parkinson’s” says founder Paul Ruby.
The foundation’s proceeds go to Northwestern University’s Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center to support research on Parkinson’s research. To date, the foundation has raised over $500,000 for research, and projects supported have gone on to receive funding from the National Institutes of Health.
