05/27/2021

The 2021 Blues, Brews & BBQ benefiting Houston Area Parkinson Society was held on Sunday, May 23, 2021 at Wicklow Heights . More than 200 supporters helped raise nearly $49,000 for programs that are critical to serving the Houston Parkinson's community.

By using a whole-human approach to community building, HAPS reduces the fear and isolation associated with a Parkinson’s diagnosis. For over 45 years, we have offered free therapeutic exercise and support groups, social services, and education to families affected by Parkinson’s disease in eight Houston-area counties. Proceeds from Blues, Brews & BBQ will help fund these services.

For a rainy day, it still proved to be a lively afternoon with the perfect mix of blues music, featuring Steve Krase, Evelyn Rubio, Rick Lee & The Night Owls, The Drift and Tony Vega Band and fantastic BBQ donated by 2 Guys 1 Pit BBQ and Catering.

Kathryn Fredrick (HAPS Young Professional) served as the emcee. The raffle featured Astros tickets, fabulous trips and more.

Many thanks to all our supporters.
