Last year’s sold out Bingo event returns on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at Stonebridge Country Club to benefit the Parkinson Association of Southwest Florida.It is anticipated over 200 people will gather to play Bingo for designer handbags and baubles. The designer handbags include: Louis Vuitton, Versace, Kate Spade and Burberry. Tickets are $55 per person and include a buffet dinner and twelve rounds of bingo.
“We are beyond grateful to community for their support of this upcoming event which allows ups to continue to expand programs to meet the growing needs of our community,” said Linda Goldfield, Executive Director of the Parkinson Association of Southwest Florida.
Parkinson Disease is the fastest growing disease in our community. Aging and exposure to chemicals are the two highest risk factors for receiving a diagnosis of PD. In the next twenty years, PD will surpass Alzheimer’s Disease.
The Parkinson Association provides free services and programs that improve the quality of life for persons with Parkinson Disease and their care partners. This year we provided: 768 exercise classes, 300 support groups, 30 education programs, 216 speech/music therapy classes, 14 social activities and 12 improv classes. With there is no charge to participate in the programs and services, the Association absorbs the cost of close to $400 per household.
