Light Of Day Winterfest is scheduled to take place Jan. 5-15 in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia.

The first day, Jan. 5, will be celebrated in Montclair, N.J., followed by one day in Philadelphia Jan. 6. After that there is a single day in Asbury Park, N.J., Jan. 7 and a day in New York City Jan. 10. The remaining dates, Jan. 11-15 will then return to Asbury Park.

This year the festival raised more than $500,000 once again, moving it past $4.5 million total over its 17-year history. 

There is still no word on the lineup, though Bruce Springsteen is often a fixture at the event, as he has played 11 out of the 17 years it has been around.

The festival is run by the Light of Day Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to funding research for cures and treatments for Parkinson’s, PSP and ALS. It re-grants money to organizations like the Michael J. Fox Foundation, CurePSP, the Parkinson’s Foundation, and Parkinson’s Unity Walk. The event began as a birthday celebration for famed manager Bob Benjamin, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1996.

Other upcoming Light of Day events include Happy Together 2017 with The Turtles feat. Flo & Eddie, The Association, Chuck Negron, The Box Tops, The Cowsills, and The Archies in Red Bank, N.J., Aug. 5 and the Light of Day Foundation’s Golf Outing Oct. 9 in Neptune, N.J.
