It’s chilly outside, which in Plano means the holiday season is truly here!

Celebrate with a sip of Merlot or a toasty mug of hot cocoa at the first annual Tour of Trees event. This holiday gala and silent auction is hosted by The Village at Mapleshade and benefits the Parkinson Voice Project. The mission of the Parkinson Voice Project is to preserve the voices of individuals with Parkinson’s and related neurological disorders through intensive speech therapy, follow-up support, research, education and community awareness. The organization is funded entirely through donations and their Pay It Forward Initiative, which means they are not billed rather, they are asked to Pay It Forward.
