DANIMA Productions PRESENTS, Songs & Stories.
Good morning LODers.
“Once again, thank you for your support of our shows. We raised over 16k for our beneficiaries! Thank you,” says DANIMA Dave (DANIMA Productions & President Light of Day Canada).
Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that affects between one-and-a-half million and two million. The incidence of PD is often underestimated because it is not contagious and does not have to be reported by physicians. PD may appear at any age, but it is uncommon in people younger than 40, and the risk of developing it increases with age. It occurs in all parts of the world, and men are affected slightly more often than women.
The Light of Day Foundation, Inc. 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 lifetime.
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. Benjamin 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. Over $2,000 was raised that night. Spurred by the generosity and support, Benjamin reached out to friends, including concert promoter Tony Pallagrosi and musician Joe D’Urso, and formed the Light of Day charity, taking its name from a Bruce Springsteen song.
Now it’s time to assist our artists who have had a tough-go during this COVID Crisis.
We started an online virtual ticketed series called “Songs & Stories” and past artists were Jason Heath, Miss Emily, Jake Thistle, Bobby Mahoney, and Stephen Stanley.
Next up: Join DANIMA Dave for Volume 8 of the wildly popular Songs & Stories with this week’s guest, straddling the border of New York and New Jersey, Mr. Light of Day and our good friend, singer and songwriter, and co founder of LOD, Joe D’Urso!!
