Giving@First: A 24-Hour Play Festival for Parkinson's Research

Giving@First 3: A 24-Hour Play Festival for Parkinson's Research



ONE NIGHT ONLY! February 9 at 8 PM

Giving@First will be presented at Unity Somerville, 6 William Street, Somerville, MA 02144

Suggested Donation - $20
100% of donations and concessions sales will go to Team Fox for Parkinson's Research.


Giving@First is a one-night-only festival of short plays that will be created from page to stage within a 24-hour period. Our talented crew of more than 20 writers, directors, and actors will scramble overnight and all day long to create a full festival from scratch! This play-in-a-day event will be a unique experience to see live theatre that is fun, frantic, unforgettable, and for an important cause!

All proceeds collected at this event will be given to the grass-roots fundraising division of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research (MJFF), Team Fox.

About Parkinson's

Over five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease, a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder whose symptoms typically progress from mild tremors to complete physical incapacitation. In the United States, an estimated 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease. Current treatments mask symptoms but do not alter or slow disease progression.

About Team Fox

Team Fox started in 2006 as the community fundraising division of The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Currently, Team Fox has over 5,000 active members and has raised more than $75 million toward accelerating a cure for Parkinson's disease and improved therapies for those living with the condition today. The Michael J. Fox Foundation, the largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson's research, pursues its goals through an aggressively funded, highly targeted research program, and has invested more than $800 million in research to date. For more information, visit the Team Fox website and the Team Fox Facebook page.

Please note that if you are unable to attend, you can still contribute to our fundraising efforts! Donate directly to Team Fox.
