Fundraiser for Parkinson’s

LtoR: Joye DeGoede, Jennifer Campbell and Cathy Boss-Fessel

N. Scottsdale Movers and Shakers Team are recruiting for Annual Moving Day Phoenix Walk.


The new JoyEful Gallery – Joye DeGoede Fine Art, at El Pedregal at The Boulders, North Scottsdale, will host an art and wine reception on Saturday, October 9, 3:00-5:00 p.m., to benefit the Parkinson’s Foundation.

Attendees will meet gallery artists and enter a raffle for prizes from local businesses including gallery host Joye DeGoede – JoyEful Party Animals, Hyde Park Interiors, Salon Mila, The Boulders Resort & Spa, Spotted Donkey restaurant, Stefan Mann boutique, Merle Norman Studio and Spa Splendore at The Summit.

The fundraiser is part of a recruitment effort by the N. Scottsdale Movers and Shakers “Walk for Parkinson’s” team that will participate for the third year in the annual Moving Day Phoenix events to be held in November.
Team members will be on hand at the fundraiser to recruit participants to help raise money for the Moving Day Phoenix walk for Parkinson’s. The reception will also include speakers sharing personal stories and information about Parkinson’s and the Moving Day event.

The Movers and Shakers are eager to build on last year’s successful walk for Parkinson’s. Despite the COVID pandemic in 2020, the 15-member team raised almost $15,000 to support Parkinson’s research and services. Funds raised through Moving Day events nationwide go to making lives better for those living with PD.

Supporters can visit MovingDayPhoenix.org to register to join the N. Scottsdale Movers and Shakers team to help fundraise; to offer support by donating to a team member online; or to form their own teams to walk, fundraise and compete for prizes.
