The Parkinson’s Support Center’s Denim & Diamonds Gala celebration raises money to help fund support groups, exercise programs, and educational sessions all aimed at improving the quality of life among those affected by Parkinson’s disease in our community.  “Denim and Diamonds is our largest annual fundraiser contributing to 40% of our annual budget.  This fundraiser is not only a chance to raise awareness for Parkinson’s disease, but it is an opportunity for the community to show support and raise money in a fun way.  The funding from this event allows us to keep our programs and services free of charge for those living with Parkinson’s and their families.”  –Allie Hanson, Community Engagement Coordinator
