2022 Michael J. Fox Foundation Gala

Jeannie Gaffigan and Jim Gaffigan attend the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research gala at Cipriani South Street on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2022, in New York City

On Saturday, October 29, nearly 600 friends gathered at the extraordinary Casa Cipriani in New York City. Guests celebrated the Foundation’s tireless work accelerating Parkinson’s research and its astounding global impact on better treatments, a cure and, even prevention toward the disease. Since its start in 2000, MJFF has funded an incredible $1.5 billion in high-impact research programs, and the gala has helped raise more than $112 million of that sum, with $4 million of that total coming from 2022 alone. Thanks to MJFF’s Board of Directors, 100 percent of proceeds the evening goes directly to speeding the Foundation’s global research programs.

It was a star-studded evening, bringing together #FoxGala friends and supporters for a night filled with comedy geniuses and musical talent. Host Denis Leary opened the show with his band The Enablers, by reminiscing on Michael J. Fox and the Foundation’s impact over the years. The evening also included hilarious performances from Samantha Bee, Lewis Black and Jim Gaffigan. To get involved please visit The Michael J Fox Foundation.
