The Event You Don't Want to Miss for Curing Parkinson's

More than 16,000 Alabamians are living with Parkinson's. That's not counting the family members and caregivers that are also impacted by their loved ones journey with Parkinson's. Currently, symptoms can be treated with medications, therapy, and surgical options. But, to date, there is NO cure for Parkinson's.

At the Parkinson Association of Alabama (PAA), our mission is to Improve the Quality of Lives for People Affected by Parkinson's, their Families, and their Caregivers throughout the State of Alabama. But to do this, we need your help. It takes funding. We have three key areas of focus: Care, Community and Cure. It's what we do. This evening's event is all about CURE. Through your generous support - you allow the PAA to support local research at the University of Alabama at Birmingham - one of five Udall Centers of Excellence for Parkinson's Disease in nation.

On Thursday, April 27th from 5pm to 8pm, those passionate about finding a cure for Parkinson's will gather at the B&A Warehouse (1531 1st Ave. S., Birmingham, AL 35233) for an evening filled with fun, fellowship, great entertainment, amazing food and spirits - but most importantly, the opportunity to raise funds to CURE Parkinson's Disease.

This annual event is the perfect fundraiser to celebrate Parkinson's Awareness month in April. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample desserts and spirits from the Birmingham area, along with an amazing menu provided by B&A Warehouse. No one will leave hungry. Live music, Parkinson's program demonstrations, and a chance to visit with those in the Parkinson's community are all key features to this year's event.

Dr. David Standaert, Chair of Neurology at UAB and Movement Disorder Specialist will be providing a few remarks to help you understand how your money is used toward research. We are on the brink to so many more opportunities to treat Parkinson's. Demonstrations from PD Fight Club, Dance for PD, and other exhibitors will also be available to help you plug in to living a quality life with Parkinson's.

There are many opportunities to support a cure for Parkinson's. As always, a silent auction with the opportunity to bid on artwork, jewelry, vacations and many other options will be available. And this year, for a minimal enrollment fee, you can enter for a chance to win gift cards throughout the Birmingham area for some of its most famous fine dining opportunities. A wine pull drawing will also be apart of this year's event.

Cost to attend is $75 per person. All proceeds will go to benefit local Parkinson's research and care navigation services offered by the PAA. 100% of funds raised from the event stay LOCAL to Alabama.

You also have the opportunity to honor your loved one at the event for FREE. Simply email a photo of your loved one living well with Parkinson's to to be featured throughout the evening.


This evening wouldn't be possible without the generosity of our sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring at this event, or you would like to contribute an item for the auction, please email us at
