Team Pasquale's 2nd Annual Flapjack Pancake Breakfast at Applebee's


(April 14, 2014) - Team Pasquale hosted our second annual Flapjack Pancake Breakfast at Applebee’s in Hackensack, New Jersey on Saturday, April 5, 2014. We again presold tickets to ensure that the event would be successful. We had a great turn out of volunteers and supporters. About 100 people showed up to eat a delicious breakfast, and help us raise money. This year, we had some additions to the breakfast. We held a silent auction, and hosted a Lia Sophia Jewelry Party during the breakfast which made the event more fun and exciting. It also helped us to raise additional money! By adding the auction and jewelry party, we exceeded our total from last year, raising over $1,800 for the Parkinson’s Unity Walk.  

My family and I participate in the Parkinson’s Unity Walk to support my dad, Pasquale Ciampa. This is our way of helping my dad battle his disease. This will be our third year participating in the Unity Walk, and we will continue to do so until a cure is found for PD. We are very thankful that this walk takes place each April. It gives my family hope for a better life for my dad and all those affected by PD.
