Chip’s supports Pancakes for Parkinson’s fundraiser
Chip’s is donating all the food for the mouth-watering meal, which includes three pancakes, bacon or sausage, two eggs, and coffee or tea. The Milford Bank, the Rotary Club of Milford, ShopRite of Milford, and the McInnis Companies are major sponsors of the event.
April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month nationwide. Proceeds from Pancakes for Parkinson’s will be matched dollar for dollar, thanks to a $50 million challenge grant from Sergey Brin, a co-founder of Google, and his wife Ann Wojcicki, a co-founder of 23 and Me, a personal genetics company.
Pancakes for Parkinson’s host is Team Fox member Jody Culmone, a Woodbridge resident and Milford Rotarian who was diagnosed with PD in 2004. Proceeds will benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research to help find a cure for the millions suffering from the disease.
Business card ads at $35 and corporate sponsorships up to $1,000 are being sold. For their support of Team Fox, supporters will receive tickets and recognition in an ad book. Donations are tax deductible.
Meal tickets may be pre-ordered or purchased at the door. Checks for tickets, sponsorship, and donations should be made out to The Michael J. Fox Foundation, a non-profit organization, and sent to Team Fox/Jody Culmone, 65 Peck Hill Road, Woodbridge, CT 06525. For more information, please call 203-387-4182 or email email@example.com.
