HDSA Central Maryland Affiliate Presents - Make HD Disappear: An Evening of Music & Magic
The Huntington’s Disease Society of America’s Central Maryland Affiliate is proud to announce our 2016 Annual Celebration of Hope: Make HD Disappear, An Evening of Music and Magic to be held on November 19th, 2016 at the Chesapeake Arts Center, in Brooklyn Park, Maryland.
Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities usually during their prime working years and has no cure. Every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the faulty gene that causes Huntington’s disease. The symptoms of HD are described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases – simultaneously.
Every day HDSA’s Central Maryland Affiliate makes a difference in the lives of those affected by Huntington’s disease by providing support services, offering educational resources, and funding innovative research towards finding a cure for this neuro-degenerative disease that affects nearly 20,000 people who live in Maryland.
Make HD Disappear: An Evening of Music and Magic will feature a cocktail hour, silent auction and music performance by Tony Z & Stef. We will be honoring Dr. Peter Como, Neuropsychologist with the Food and Drug Administration for excellence in HD leadership; Ms. Catherine McFarlane, MSW, social worker for the Johns Hopkins HDSA Center of Excellence, for her exemplary support service and care of families affected by HD; George and Terri Taylor for their early leadership of the Central Maryland Affiliate; Mr. Randy Clemens and Bingo World for their outstanding support of Central Maryland Affiliate Events as a Corporate Sponsor.
About our musical performance: "The Roller Coaster of Love" with Tony Z and Stef
Is there anyone who is a total stranger to the wild, emotional ride of relationships? Many of the lyrics from the Great American Songbook and musical theater include metaphors for this experience, including up vs. down, hot vs. cold, clarity vs. bewilderment, and romance as an intoxicant or a magical spell. Vocalist Tony Ziesat and pianist Stef Scaggiari will take us on a musical ride on the roller coaster of love. Fasten your seatbelt!
