GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- April is Parkinson's Awareness month and the National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota and Dave Schwartz have come up with a unique way to raise support.

It is estimated that more than 20,000 Minnesotans have Parkinson's disease and countless other family members and caregivers are directly impacted by the disease. There is no cure, but the National Parkinson Foundation Minnesota is working to make sure all people with Parkinson's and their families can live well.

KARE 11's Dave Schwartz and his family have been personally affected by Parkinson's and in honor of his grandmother, Sylvia, Dave will be wearing a new Hammer-Made tie during every weekend broadcast beginning March 29th – April 19th

Each tie that Dave wears will be auctioned off to raise money to fund education and support activities for the Parkinson community in Minnesota and surrounding states. Learn more about how you can place your bid to win a unique tie and support a good cause.
