The net proceeds from Taste for the Cure will benefit the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation, which funds research, raises awareness, and educates the community about melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer.
Founded by melanoma survivor and mom, Tracy Callahan, the foundation’s vision is to:
Reduce the incidence of melanoma by raising awareness.
Encourage prevention with an emphasis on middle and high school age children.
Improve the early detection, rapid diagnosis, and effective treatment of melanoma.
Invest in scientific research that ultimately will result in a cure for melanoma.
