Neuro Challenge Foundation Hosts 2020 ‘Cause 4 Hope’ Gala in Sarasota, FL

The Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson’s will host its Annual Gala, “Cause 4 Hope,” presented by Amicus Foundation, at 5:30 p.m. March 14, 2020 at Michael’s On East Ballroom, 1212 S. East Avenue, Sarasota.

Co-chairing this year’s event are Nola and Larry Hietbrink and Jo and Stan Rutstein. The event will honor Dean Sutherland, M.D. for his lifetime of dedication to the local Parkinson’s community and there will be an announcement of the Doreen Sutherland Memorial Fund.

The evening will include a cocktail reception in the atrium, a chance drawing and a masterfully prepared dinner in the ballroom followed by a live auction. There will be an after-party with dancing and music by DJ Jonathan Cortez. The gala’s proceeds will support the mission of improving the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s and their caregivers.
