Tipping The Scales on Psoriasis:

              Leap Day-Leaping For a Cure

Join us on February 29th, 2020 for The 4th Annual Tipping the Scales on Psoriasis: Leap Day-Leaping For a Cure! 

This family friendly even features fun for kids and adults alike!  The kids will have a great time playing carnival games, while the adults check out the items on our always fabulous Chinese Auction, play Cash Bingo, and enjoy a variety of Small Games of Chan

Our always popular $5 dinners will tempt your taste buds! Cash bar, free non-alcoholic drinks, the famous Pittsbugh Cookie Table, Door Prizes and fun await you!! This is a family friendly event, complete with fun and games for kids of all ages!!

And, as always, we feature some of the hottest live entertainment around!!  Get back to the beginning of one of Beaver County’s hottest bands with the original Drunk Uncles, a 2 piece band that started at a garden party in Cranberry, PA, took over the acoustic mic at Key West’s Captain Tony’s, (bringing the house down with their version of a Kenny Loggins favorite), and crowd favorite at the Pittsburgh Parrothead Club’s 2018 Buffett Tailgate Party!!  Then, see what those Drunk Uncles did that turned them into the Funky Uncles, whose covers of your favorite funk, rock and the best in “Skating Rink Rock” will get your boogie shoes moving!  Emcee for the day is our great friend Ralph Cananzi, of Frank’s Original Grill and Spyn Doctor’s DJ Service.

My Story: In just under 4 years, I have moved from hiding my Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis to finding my passion in advocacy, mentoring and fundraising!  I love the mission statement: “The NPF is a non-profit organization with a mission to drive efforts to cure psoriatic disease and improve the lives of those affected”.   After more than 20 years of psoriasis, and over 10 with psoriatic arthritis, a dozen failed medications, 2 joint replacements, permanent disability and countless procedures, the strides in understanding and treating my disease, while amazing, aren’t yet a cure. 

All proceeds from Tipping the Scales on Psoriasis will benefit the NPF.  As the leading non-profit organization championing for the care and cure of psoriatic disease, NPF is unparalleled in its offerings for patients and practitioners. From community volunteers, to one to one peer mentoring, to local, state and federal advocacy, NPF not only funds research and development for diagnostic tools, treatment and cure of psoriatic disease (over $15 million in 2018 alone), but also works to add common sense patient protections for medical treatment and to lower out of pocket drug costs. NPF also offers free webinars and programs for medical practitioners and patients, as well as patient assistance and support through the Patient Navigation Center, where trained staff are available to help those who suffer from psoriatic disease find a doctor, file for disability, obtain assistance with accessing medications, and so much more.

Get your tickets for the best Leap Day gig around, the gig that has won an NPF award, THE place to be!!

Thank you to everyone who made our 3rd Annual Tipping The Scales fundraiser such a roaring success!  We raised over $6200.00 for the education and care of those who suffer from psoriatic disease, their providers and their caregivers, as well as dollars to fund research for psoriasis treatment and a cure, as well as a diagnostic tool for PsA.  What an amazing day of music, food, games and fun!
