Young Leadership Council
UPCOMING EVENT: Rebecca Taylor Shopping Fundraiser - April 10, 2013
Our Young Leadership Council ("YLC") invites young professionals who have a specific interest in our Foundation to help raise funds, plan events, and network with others to raise awareness of the critical need for more research dollars to help people with dystonia and Parkinson’s disease.
Upcoming events for young professionals include shopping nights and free cocktail parties featuring experts from the worlds of finance, journalism, start-ups, fashion and beauty alongside top neurologists in the movement disorder field. These fun and interesting events are part of something new to the Foundation: the wildly popular "Cocktails & Conversation" series. While we hope guests enjoy these free events, we wouldn't mind if they also leave with a fuller understanding of the Foundation and the diseases it's fighting to cure.
"As a 32-year-old living with dystonia, the Foundation gives me hope that better treatments and cures will be found in my lifetime. To ensure that happens, my generation needs to join the fight . . . and there's nothing wrong with us having fun while we do so."
~ Ali London, Chair, Professional Philanthropy Group
