A MAN WITH A PLAN: Linda Avey has worked with the Michael J. Fox Foundation to research the genetic causes of Parkinson’s disease and her brother, Georgetown-chiropractor-to-the-stars Dr. Philip Bahnson, wanted to help. Why not fundraise in Newport, his favorite summer resort? CONNECTIONS COUNT: Success was assured when Bahnson’s pals Joe and Victoria Mele, agreed to host an event at their home, “Land’s End” (once owned by writer Edith Wharton) and Nuala Pell, whose late husband, Sen. Claiborne Pell, suffered from Parkinson’s, signed on as honorary chairwoman.
