A Benefit to Fund Scientific Research for the Treatment of Down Syndrome

‘On March 29th we raised almost $100,000. Newman’s Own Foundation and a private contributor and friend of the family, both donated $10,000. I received several other donations from $5000-$10,000.

Event at Miller Motor Cars

Emily Perl Kingsley came straight from Sesame Street to talk about her son Jason and Prof. William Mobley flew in from San Francisco, especially for the event. Pari Kreutter-Hirsch chaired the benefit and made it a huge success. Over a hundred people came. We are already planning next year’s event at Miller Motor Cars with the help of Cyndi and Richard Koppelman as well as a benefit in England.  If you want to help, please call Chelsea at 203 838 8844 or Email to nickipiti@aol.com. ‘ our initial goal is one million dollars. To really get this off the ground and find a cure for Down Syndrome we are going to need 20-30 million dollars or 15 million pounds. If you know someone who would like to endow a chair or name the Stanford Institute of Neuroscience after themselves or a family member, talk to them and find out if they would like to help these wonderful children around the world so that may lead a truly independent life and avoid the onset of early Alzheimer’s disease.’
