Team Fox Detroit’s 4th Annual Gala 2019

This year we are proud to once again play a part in the fight against Parkinson’s disease by hosting our 4th Annual Gala on Saturday, September 21st at the Henry Hotel, Dearborn Michigan.

For those that would like to make their plans for this year’s Gala, we have reserved a block of 50 rooms at The Henry Hotel in Dearborn Michigan. Prices range from $150 to $170 depending on the size of the room so long as you book before August 30th, 2019. To reach the Henry Hotel, call (313) 441-2000. Mention you are apart of the Team Fox in the D Gala for the group rate.

To date, Team Fox Detroit has raised over $600,000—100 percent of which has gone directly to the high-impact research programs at The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF). This year, we strive to break the $1,000,000 mark in under five years since our inception.  We have been grateful beyond words for the Detroit community’s support and we hope you’ll once again join us to reach this incredible goal!

Taking on the challenge of this fundraising endeavor is both exciting and inspiring. Our initial interest derived from the impact Parkinson’s has had on our family, but our continued dedication stems from the knowledge that we CAN and WILL help to speed a cure. We hope you’ll join us on September 21st to become part of that mission.

Donna Rajkovic

Founder & President

Donna founded Team Fox Detroit in 2016, a 501c(3) public charity dedicated to supporting the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. She became President in 2018 when the charity she founded received its official IRS designation. She was diagnosed with young onset Parkinson’s disease in 2012 and has been enrolled in the Parkinson’s Progression Marker Initiative (PPMI) research study at the Cleveland Clinic for seven years. The PPMI study is dedicated to finding a biomarker for Parkinson’s disease which would make it easier to diagnose and target new medications to stop disease progression. She is also enrolled in Fox Insight, an online clinical study where people with Parkinson’s disease and their loved ones share information that could transform the search for better treatments.

In addition to leading Team Fox Detroit, Donna serves as President of Serbian Sisters Ravanica whose primary function is to raise money to support children’s activities in the St. Lazarus Parish as well as other Orthodox charities in the Detroit metropolitan area. She also serves as Second Vice President of The Executive Board of St. Lazarus Ravanica Serbian Orthodox Church in Detroit, Michigan.

Donna is committed to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through funding research. She lives in Novi, MI with her husband Mike and their three sons, Stevan, Daniel, and Alan.
