During every week-end evening broadcast in April, KARE 11’s Dave Schwartz and Hammer Made will be teaming up to beat Parkinson’s. Tune in to KARE 11 to check out the tie Dave is wearing. All ties will be on auction and available for purchase through Ebay. All proceeds will go to help the 20,000 people and families living with Parkinson’s in Minnesota.
Dave honors his grandmother, Sylvia, with this effort. His grandmother lived for many years with Parkinson’s.
