"Every year, the silent auction offering gets better, the crowd gets rowdier, and Susan raises more dollars for Parkinson's research." -- Michael J. Fox
ABOUT TIPS FOR PARKINSON'S
Founded in 2006 by Susan Bilotta, Tips for Parkinson’s is a unique social event centered around a friendly bartending competition that also includes artisan food, silent auctions and guest appearances. The event raises awareness and funds to support The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s mission to put an end to Parkinson’s disease.
Tips for Parkinson’s began as a gathering of 100 friends in NYC. Just eight years later, it was the FIRST Team Fox event to collectively raise over $1 million for The Michael J. Fox Foundation. To date, Tips for Parkinson’s has raised nearly $2 million and has grown to annually host 600+ professionals at the iconic IAC HQ in NYC.
The compassion and kindness shown by sponsors, bartenders, friends, and community has made Tips for Parkinson’s successful and we are thrilled to expand our 2017 event offering outside of NYC to Chicago, Washington DC and Austin.
About The Michael J. Fox Foundation + Team Fox
The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda, and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today. Since 2000, MJFF has funded over $700 million in research grants and initiatives to speed a cure.
Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising arm of The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each year, thousands of Team Fox members worldwide transform their passions and interests into unique fundraising events-- like Tips for Parkinson's!-- and athletic feats. To date, Team Fox members have collectively raised over $55 million for Parkinson's research. And, thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor, 100 percent of Team Fox proceeds from events like Tips go straight to the research programs funded by MJFF.
