6th Annual Pasta Bar for a Cure of A-T breaks records!

The 6th Annual Pasta Bar for a Cure of Ataxia Telangiectasia, held in Englewood, Florida on October 17th, 2015, stomped all set fundraising goals!

With over 150 guests in attendance, donations mailed in starting months in advance and through others who participated in our online auction from home, we raised $38,000… up from $26,500 in 2014!!!

For this years event, we took a risk and moved our popular silent auction online.This opened up our audience to anyone in the U.S. and helped us to increase our auction revenue from $3,500 in 2014 to over $8,000! Thank you to Bidpal for providing the software, hardware and support while we navigated through our 1st year in the digital fundraising world!

Thank you to all who supported from afar, came out to join us for the event! A special thank you to our event sponsors, especially Castle Air, to all who donated items and services, as well to our volunteers… all who helped to make this years Pasta Bar the most successful yet!!

100% of these funds have been allocated to medical research and will see action in 2016!!
