On Sunday, April 28, 2019 The Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation gathered at The Pavilion at Carriage Farm for our annual Taste for a Cure Gala. This year, the event featured 13 acclaimed chefs, led by the wonderful Serge Falcoz-Vigne of Saint Jacques. Each appetizer was paired with a cocktail, and dinner was served family style. We raised over $165,000, which will directly fund melanoma screenings and research.
PDMMF would like to thank the following culinary experts for contributing their time, talent, and food to our event. Because of you, the future of the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation – and the prospect for early detection, melanoma awareness, and prevention – looks so bright.
