Piano Entrepreneur Will Donate $100K To Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Upon Sale Of Million Dollar Steinway
Date:1/31/2017

Sonny Stancarone, CEO of Sonny's Luxury Art Case Pianos, a premiere Long Island restoration house for pre-owned art case Steinways and other brand name pianos, is pledging to donate $100,000, or 10 percent of the final price of a million-dollar Steinway he has offered for sale, to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Long Island Chapter to help in its quest to find a cure for juvenile diabetes.

“I hope by doing this it will bring attention to the importance of finding a cure for this devastating illness, and the money we raise will help families cope with this condition and improve the quality of their lives,“ said Stancarone, a longtime piano entrepreneur and piano dealer.

“Millions of people around the world live with type 1 diabetes, a life-threatening autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults. There is no way to prevent it, and at present, no cure. JDRF works every day to change this by amassing grassroots support, deep scientific knowledge and strong industry and academic partnerships to fund research. Sonny’s contribution will go a long way to supporting our efforts,” said Joann Flick, director of development at JDRF Long Island Chapter.

The million-dollar Steinway, known as the “Prince’s Love Piano,” was purchased by a Prussian prince in 1900 from the Steinway Hamburg, Germany, factory. The prince commissioned a master artist to create a series of King Louis XV “Vernis Martin” style love scenes on the piano to immortalize his love for his princess. The piano itself is a Hamburg Steinway Model A – one of the finest instruments money could buy then and now. The piano is part of Sonny’s luxury art case pianos collection and was purchased and restored by Sonny's Art Case Pianos over the past year.

Stancarone chose the JDRF for his donation, he said, because “the public is generally not aware of what a difficult illness type 1 diabetes is to manage with its daily regimen of blood sugar level monitoring, insulin injections or insulin pump adjustments, exacting dietary restrictions and meal scheduling, all of which even when performed perfectly can still result in catastrophe when sugar levels go too low or too high. Swings in blood sugar levels can cause mood changes, inability to concentrate, urgent cravings for sugary foods and can be debilitating – even fatal.”

In particular, Stancarone believes families with young children and infants who have juvenile diabetes struggle because children cannot always communicate what they are experiencing, leaving parents not knowing when to make any necessary adjustments to help their child function normally. “I'd like to encourage others to donate to this important cause at http://www.jdrf.org,” he added. “Even small donations are greatly appreciated and can go a long way.”
