PARC announces fund raiser for Oct. 13

On Oct. 13, PARC’s 12th annual fundraiser walk event will be held at Norton Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is a fundraiser event that honors the memory of Helen Coughlin who, with the help of others, had a vision to give people of all ages, with developmental disabilities, a structural environment for social experiences, cultural learning, and respite for the families.

You can sponsor the event by creating a team of walkers. Join one of the Rainbow teams, which represent PARC members, Pet Lovers, faith-based organizations, military/ scouts, schools, the Rotary Club, or professionals.

The event also features our chili cook off contest. You cook the chili, bring it to the event, and you’ll be hooked up with an outlet. The participants on site will have the opportunity to taste and judge your creation.
