Tips for Parkinson's

  • Thompson Chicago hotel 21 East Bellevue Place Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)

On Sunday, August 14, 2016, the Chicago Professionals for Parkinson’s Research will hold its first annual Tips for Parkinson’s event at the Thompson Chicago hotel. The event —first launched 11 years ago in New York City —combines food, silent auction, a 50/50 raffle and a bartending competition for an afternoon of fun, while raising awareness and money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation and its mission to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

Join the Bartending Competition

Bartending teams will compete against one another to raise money for Parkinson’s research. Each team, made up of 3-4 people, will have 45 minutes to serve drinks and collect tips. At the end of the day, the winning team will be awarded a prize and be named the 2016 Tips for Parkinson’s Champions.

Interested in creating a team? Please contact Abby Baumann at to set up a team. Teams must raise a minimum of $200 prior to the event to compete. Team members do not need to purchase event tickets.
