Join us for a fun-filled night of cocktails, dinner, merriment, and more at the Magic of Hope Gala & Auction! It's a festive gathering in support of the local Parkinson's community, with many ways to support the American Parkinson Disease Association, Massachusetts Chapter (APDA MA). Every dollar raised goes to provide the support, education, and research that will help everyone impacted by Parkinson's disease live life to the fullest!

This year we celebrate our second Magic of Hope Gala & Auction which is quickly becoming our largest fundraiser of the year. In our Inaugural year, we raised over $150,000, and with your support this year we will hit our goal of $175,000!
