About the Cause...NPF Central & Southeast Ohio is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support to individuals and families affected by Parkinson's Disease. They host and organize a number of activities, fund raisers, support groups and educational opportunities for the local community while simultaneously participating in the national effort to raise awareness. Parkinson's Disease is a neurodegenerative progressive brain disorder for which there is yet no cure. The best hope is for researchers to continue to work toward a cure and treatment options. In the meantime, local chapters like the NPF Central & Southeast Ohio work at the community level with grassroots efforts to assist those affected and inform the public. Visit their website here.

About the venue...Parkside Village in Westerville has graciously agreed to host our very first fund-raiser/birthday bash. Parkside Village is central Ohio's newest (2012) and most dynamic Senior Living Community. More than the stunning property situated on a wooded lot with a country-like feel or the elegant/upscale interior or the varied floor plans or even the delightful staff is the care they provide. As a community liaison for a home care agency that works closely with Parkside, I can personally attest to the wonderful care, attention to detail and on-going communication provided at Parkside. They offer assisted living, independent living and memory care. The memory care unit, better known as "The Glen," is one of the most inviting in the city. It comes as no surprise that Parkside recently achieved a deficiency-free survey with the Ohio Department of Health. Visit website here.
About the entertainment...live music will be performed by local jazz artist Dwight Lenox and the Lenox Avenue Express. Dwight has been singing professionally in central Ohio for more than 20 years and he and his band have almost 15 years together. They specialize in jazz but also offer a fun variety of dance music. Dwight was interviewed on Senior Agenda recently - a podcast will be available for review shortly. For a preview of the music, listen here. We are honored to have such talent to help us celebrate Senior Agenda and raise money for NPF Central & Southeast Ohio.
About the door prizes...a nice variety of door prizes will be offered by trusted local vendors and healthcare providers. Those who donate door prizes will be listed in the event program and acknowledged on social media sites in the weeks leading up to the event. Please contact us at 614-800-5550 if you are interested in making a donation.
