The PAA Board of Directors and Staff would like to extend a huge “Thank you!” to the sponsors, vendors, and participants that made Taste for a Cure 2019 our most successful event yet! Together we raised over $158,000 this year, 100% of which is directed towards medical research and care programs that benefit Parkinson’s patients, caregivers, and loved ones throughout Alabama.
