The 3rd Playing for Parkinson's, which took place on Sunday, June 11th at The Big Easy, was a huge success! Over $6,000 was raised in support of programs and services that HAPS provides, free of charge, to the local Houston community.

A great time was had by all - the event included fantastic live entertainment, delicious BBQ and a silent auction which raised valuable funds for HAPS.

Thank you to all of our in-kind donors and attendees for supporting such a special event! 

Special thanks to the entertainment for the event:
