I was so happy to have Bob Benjamin in the audience with us and thank my fellow musicians on stage Scott Elk, Kyle Ward, Anthony Krizan, CC Coletti and Stella Mrowicki for this Songwriter by the Sea event celebrating the 20th Anniversary of The Light of Day Foundation, Inc., which "utilizes the power of music to raise money and awareness in its continuing battle to defeat Parkinson’s disease and its related illnesses ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and PSP (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy) within our lifetimes by funding research into possible cures, improved treatments and support for patients who suffer from those illnesses, their families and their caregivers to help improve their quality of life. The concerts and the organization began as a birthday party in November 1998 at the Downtown Cafe in Red Bank, NJ to celebrate the 40th birthday of artist manager and music industry veteran Bob Benjamin who had recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system, and in lieu of gifts, asked that donations be made to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation." What a special night!
