Michael J. Fox Foundation

Jeff has been a key member of the Fox Foundation’s annual benefit “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Cure” for the past 7 years. Hosted by Dennis Leary the event is attended by 950 guests and raises over $4.5 million each year.

Guest presenters have included Katie Couric, Amanda Peet, Susan Sarandon, Muhammad Ali, Ricky Gervais, Martin Scorsese, and Ryan Reynolds. Musical guests have included Elvis Costello, The Who, The Roots, John Mayer, Sheryl Crow, Axl Rose, Greg Allman, Joan Jett and Lauren Hill.

The highlight of the event each year is when Michael performs on guitar with the musical guests. As Michael’s private guitar coach, Jeff works with him in preparation and is on hand for each performance as a consultant for the song selection and arrangements.

Jeff encourages anyone who is able to do so to contribute to this foundation.
