Los Angeles: Hollywood celebrities Lena Dunham, Constance Zimmer, Andrew Rannells and Dana Delany and others have united to help raise funds for Parkinson's research.
The event, sponsored by United Talent Agency and Management 360, raised over USD 96,000 for the Michael J Fox Foundation, said The Hollywood Reporter.
Many of the guests in attendance had a personal connection to the foundation, having family members living with Parkinson's disease, including Dunham's uncle, whom she cites as her hero.
The "Girls" star took to Instagram after the event to share her appreciation for the Fox Foundation and the awareness it has created.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Michaela McManus also attended the event.
Delany said, "People make jokes about 'disease of the week' movies, but it really is a great educational tool. Even with Michael living and working on The Good Wife, he's showing that a disorder is not a death sentence."
