About the Foundation

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.
