On Saturday 1 November, Jane Young (mother of Shake It Up CEO, Ben Young) hosted a delightful afternoon tea at the home of her mother, Ellie Spiro raising $3,200 for the Foundation.
In the beautiful surrounds of Ellie’s abundant and colourful garden and character filled home the 50 guests were treated to a day of decadence. Sandwiches, sweets and French Champagne were the order of the day along with a raft of beautiful raffle prizes donated by local businesses.
Ben Young presented an overview with respect to Parkinson’s and the research being funded by the Foundation. He also explained to the guests that it is events just like this that make it possible for Shake It Up to continue our quest. Ben said, ‘We know that there are hundreds of thousands of Australians just as passionate about finding a cure for Parkinson’s as us and it is events like this that unite the Parkinson’s community and make funding research possible.’
