Have Fun. Support Parkinson’s Research
American Parkinson Disease Association, Green Valley Branch
On the 8th of April, the APDA Parkinson’s Support Group of Green Valley will hold its 7th Annual Activity Day Research Fundraiser. It is expected to be our biggest and most successful event yet! Last year over 175 participants and volunteers enjoyed Activity Day and the variety of activities available (exercise class, trivia challenge, card-making, Bingo and more), the entertainment provided by musician Angel Perez, and the choice of bag lunches. Items in the huge silent auction generated a lot of bids, and the special items in the live auction drew in a large crowd as Kelly Cooper encouraged the bidding to go higher and higher. Most importantly, Activity Day 2014 raised $24,969, all of which was donated to APDA’s Parkinson’s research projects!
The APDA Green Valley Branch thanks TEVA Pharmaceutical and Medtronic for their continuing, generous sponsorship of our Green Valley Support Group. Numerous individuals and local businesses have already made donations and contributed items to this year’s auction. Many volunteers from the community and the Green Valley Parkinson’s Support Group will help everything run smoothly. Their enthusiasm and commitment are sure to make for a fun-filled Activity Day.
We invite You to participate—
