MPF Fundraising Night Of A Thousand Stars

Night of a Thousand Stars

2013 A Night Of A Thousand Stars Event

A Night of A Thousand Stars, MPF's annual benefit which was held on November 2, 2013 at St. John's Conference & Banquet Center in Southfield, celebrated not only people affected by Parkinson's disease, but our Thirtieth Anniversary! To top it off, Michigan Parkinson Foundation also honored its President, Dr. Peter LeWitt, who marks his 30th year as a vital part of MPF in January 2014.

Joining in on the festivities were 250 people, including representatives from many support groups throughout the state, Board Members, Professional Advisory Board Members, and friends.
The elegant St. John Armenian Church and Conference Center in Southfield proved to be a superb venue, serving excellent food. Entertainment and dancing music was provided by The Henry Ford Big Band, an ensemble of 17 musicians who are world renown. The emcee was radio personality, columnist and celebrity spokesperson, Linda Lanci, back for her fourth year. The photographer was Subi Bhandari. All volunteered their time and talents to this event. Attendees raved about the evening - its warmth, the elegant atmosphere and exciting silent raffle prizes. We will post earnings shortly. All proceeds will be used for MPF's upcoming 2014 education and support programs.
