Several years ago, Mr. Mardones was struck with Parkinson's. He is now dedicating his life to fighting this tragic disease and singing at charitable events to help find treatments and a cure for Parkinson's.
"There's a million people in the U.S. that have Parkinson's with me. Help us cross the finish line for a cure."

The event was kicked off with the crowd gathering in the living room of the Cytryn home to watch Mr. Mardones give an intimate performance of "Into the Night." Attendees sang along as Mr. Mardones performed this and other hits throughout the evening. Later on by the pool, local guitarist Nicholas Marks energized the crowd while performing his flamenco-style guitar act, followed by a colorful belly dancer.
Mr. Cytryn would like to thank everyone involved in the fundraiser for their hard work and support, with a special "thank you" to all the people who donated to this important and worthwhile cause. We appreciate your support!
