Lumpkin resident hosts concert benefiting Parkinson's Disease Foundation

LUMPKIN, GA (WTVM) - A Lumpkin woman is tuned in to the fight against Parkinson's disease. 

Angela Bradshaw, owner of Lumpkin Events, hosted the First Annual Country Music Concert on May 2 and raised $1,200 to benefit the Parkinson's Disease Foundation.  

The event featured performances by singer Daryle Singletary, The Ranch Road Band and comedian Bruce Walker. There was also free educational materials about Parkinson's, a raffle and cornhole tournament. 

"My husband was diagnosed last August with Parkinson's," Bradshaw said. "We've always loved music and organizing events, so this is the perfect way to not only get the word out about Parkinson's in our small community but raise as much money as possible to fund PDF's efforts for a cure."

The event took place from 6 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Pataula Plantation located on GA Highway 27 in Lumpkin. 

To support Bradshaw's fundraising efforts, contact the Parkinson's Disease Foundation at (800) 457-6676, email info@pdf.org or visit her fundraising page.  

As many as one million Americans live with Parkinson's disease, a chronic and progressive movement disorder. Although research is promising, there is currently no cure. 

The Parkinson's Disease Foundation supports the scientific research and ideas that will improve the lives and futures of people who are touched by Parkinson's disease. Since its founding in 1957, PDF has invested more than $149 million in research, education and advocacy programs.
