Join us for our annual fundraiser!

PTEN Fundraiser

In collaboration with Pourhouse Huntsville and Bark and Barrel, we are excited to host our 2nd Annual Fundraiser.

Join us for Barbeque, Bingo, and Beer, a charity event benefiting the PTEN Hamartoma Tumor Syndrome (PHTS) Foundation. PHTS is an under-diagnosed hereditary cancer syndrome affecting women, men, and children alike. Patients with the disorder are at a high lifetime risk of developing breast, thyroid, kidney, colon, and endometrial cancer, as well as melanoma. Some of our patients are affected by developmental delay and autism. Currently, there is no cure, only prevention, and screening. Your support will help us advance programs to accelerate research and give back to families in need. We will also make a donation to Alabama Rare in honor of all who are living with rare and genetic diseases.

Liam passed away unexpectedly on March 25, 2020; Liam was John and Maria Manning’s beloved son. Liam’s joyful and gentle disposition was a light to all who knew him. He loved all of his classmates, teachers, and staff. Liam was very passionate about horseback riding, swimming, and music videos. Liam’s loving personality, easy-going nature, and pure heart were evident to all who knew him. Most of all, Liam will be remembered for his beautiful smile, kind and gentle disposition, and for making everyone around him happy.
