The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today. Michael J. Fox, iconic actor, author and advocate, launched the Foundation in 2000 after publicly disclosing his 1991 Parkinson’s diagnosis at the age of 29. Inspired by Fox’s perseverance and presence in other major cities, it’s time for Las Vegas to join the climb to “out fox” Parkinson’s disease in Southern Nevada with the thousands of Team Fox members who gather worldwide each year to turn their passions into successful fundraising events for Parkinson’s research. The charity event will soar to new heights with a live auction by Cirrus Aviation, the largest, privately-owned aviation company in Las Vegas and live music performed by Frank and Deans, bringing their new rock-and-roll twist to your favorite Rat Pack era classics.
