David Arthur Vineyard’s Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner and Celebration

DAVID ARTHUR VINEYARDS of St. Helena CA will host a 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner and Celebration on June 22, 2013 as a member of Team Fox, benefiting The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF).

David Arthur Vineyards aims to raise $350,000 or more to enable MJFF to continue aggressively funding research to find better treatments and a cure for Parkinson’s disease. The Vineyards will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary by hosting a Gala Dinner and Celebration where all proceeds from the event will benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). David Arthur Vineyards will also be donating a portion of the proceeds from their newest wine,  2011 Nebbiolo . For more details on how to attend the event, purchase wine or just make a donation to this great cause, please visit their website at www.davidarthur.com or email Pam Harter at pam@davidarthur.com

“I chose to celebrate our success of the past 25 years as part of Team Fox because I had the opportunity to meet Michael J. Fox, and I wanted to do something personally to further the Foundation’s mission. They are funding cutting-edge research to bring meaningful advances in treatments and eventually a cure to people affected by this disease,” said David Long.

Over five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease, a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder whose symptoms typically progress from mild tremors to complete physical incapacitation. In the United States, an estimated 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. Current treatments mask symptoms but do not alter or slow disease progression.
