Our Story

Party For A Cure (PFAC) is proud to announce its official non-profit status as a 501(3)c.  PFAC was initially hosted by the Muscular Dystrophy of Baltimore until 2017 when PFAC incorporated as a non-profit organization.  Since the gala’s inception, we have raised over $1,000,000 thanks to all our loyal supporters. Our volunteer board makes certain that we directly give back to Maryland families in need, as well as support research and summer camp activities for MDA of Baltimore. We have used proceeds to make major renovations to homes for accessibility and for structural stability, repaired and provided for new medical equipment, enabled children to attend summer camp, and fund vital research to find treatments and cures.

Annual Party For A Cure

Annual celebration to benefit individuals with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life threatening diseases that limit strength and mobility. Together, we can help free kids and adults from the harm of these muscle debilitating diseases by finding research breakthroughs across diseases, caring for individuals from day one, and empowering family with services and support in hometowns in America.
