Summary, etc.:
Being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease at 38 was quite a blow to Bob Benjamin. But instead of letting the diagnosis take him down, Bob chose a different path...He recruited his friends - many of them musicians whom he had worked with in the past - to help him fight the disease. In 2000, Bob, Joe D'Urso, and concert promoter and former Asbury Juke Tony Pallagrosi founded the New Jersey-based Light of Day Foundation, whose main source of fundraising comes from the annual music festival that originated along the Jersey Shore and has grown into a worldwide series of concerts, which has raised over one million dollars for research.
