June: Silverstein Community Service Awards Dinner and Benefit

Silverstein Community Service Awards Dinner and Benefit for Struthers Parkinson’s Center

Join us on Thursday, June 9, 2016 to celebrate community leaders and advocates of Parkinson’s disease. You can help inspire, motivate and rally our community to help improve quality of life at every stage for people and families working to live well with Parkinson’s disease.

Throughout the evening, we will raise money to help sustain vital interdisciplinary treatment, support, research and education for men and women in all stages of Parkinson’s. These services foster independence and develop problem-solving skills needed to live well with Parkinson’s, but insurance does not cover them. We are grateful for your help to make these programs possible.
