Have you ever thought about getting a personalized car tag for Parkinson's? 
This opportunity may be available to you soon and will support Parkinson research and programs in our state coordinated through the PAA.

The PAA plans to submit the application for a Parkinson's Disease license plate through the Alabama Department of Revenue's Motor Vehicle Division (MVD).  The PAA will have one year to obtain a pre-commitment of 250 tag purchases to move forward once the MVD approves our tag submission.

Are you aware that as much as $45 of your $50 tag fee will directly support the PAA?  We hope you will consider purchasing the PAA Specialty License Plate when it is available.

We will keep you updated on this project through our monthly newsletters!




The Regions Tradition has been rescheduled for September 23-27, 2020 and it will be the final major championship on the 2020 PGA TOUR Champions schedule.  With all the best players headed to Hoover, Alabama, this will bring excitement to the event which will once again be hosted by Greystone Golf and Country Club.

Parkinson Association of Alabama, Inc. is approved as a participating charity in 2020 Regions Tradition Birdies for Charity.

The Birdies program will be doubling the bonus dollars pool for the 2020 tournament and Regions Bank has extended the program through September 28, 2020.  We now have three additional months for our donors to contribute to the PAA!


Birdies for Charity is your opportunity to help the Parkinson Association of Alabama. When you chip in for our organization, you can help make the PAA a big winner because participating charities receive every single penny of the donations collected in the program.
