The week of June 7th, 2016, Chatham Inn and Chatham Wine Bar & Restaurant put on an incredible Back to the Future event to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research. The week-long event was hosted by actor Christopher Lloyd (“Doc Brown”), and the writer and producer of Back to the Future, Bob Gale. We are excited to share that with your help we were able to raise almost $50,000! Thank you to everyone for contributing to the success of this special event! Here’s a quick recap of the of the festivities for anyone who missed it:
