1) BASKIN-ROBBINS
Please go by the participating Baskin-Robbins locations listed below every Wednesday afternoon in April and treat yourself to one of their delicious products. When you get your order, be sure to take your receipt and drop it in the Parkinsons Disease Fundraiser barrel located in the store. A portion of your purchase will be donated in support of this fundraiser.
