“Every year the silent auction prices get better, the crowd gets rowdier and Susan raises more dollars for Parkinson’s research.”
– Michael J. Fox
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 over $2.5 million and has grown to annually host 600+ professionals.
The compassion and kindness shown by sponsors, bartenders, friends, and community has made Tips for Parkinson’s successful. Due to the support we have expanded Tips for Parkinson’s to Washington DC, where in 2 years they have raised over $100,000 for Parkinson’s research. In 2019 we will welcome events in Austin and Houston areas of Texas. We will also introduce The Taste of Tips a food and alcohol tasting event.
