New York City Rhythm and Blues Concert: PDF Champions

This past Friday, June 29, I had the pleasure of attending a PDF Champions Summer Show hosted by the State Employees Federated Appeal in Queens, NY.

The event featured live music, dancing and a 50/50 raffle. Entertainment was provided by The New York City Rhythm and Blues Ensemble.

Dr. Christopher Hess, Columbia University Fellow, spoke to the audience about Parkinson's disease and addressed their questions and concerns.  Dr. Hess was the recipient of the Ronald and Isobel Konecky Fellowship for Parkinson’s Research at Columbia University Medical Center. PDF awards this Fellowship to exceptional fellows who after completion of their two-year program are offered the opportunity to continue to an additional third year of research.  PDF also provided collateral and education resources to the guests.

While the State Employees Federated Appeal's fundraising efforts are still underway, they hope to raise $2,500 for Parkinson's research. Thank you!

Please take a look at some photos from the event:
