Join us for a fun-filled night of cocktails, dinner, merriment and more at the annual Magic of Hope Gala & Auction! It's a spirited gathering of the local Parkinson's community with many ways to support the Northwest Chapter of APDA in their mission to improve the lives of those living with Parkinson's and to fund the cure!
