Restaurant cooks for a cure, donates to Parkinson's research

Posted: Updated:

LIBERTY, Ohio - A restaurant is cooking up delicious ways to donate to Parkinsons research.

The donations will go toward finding a better treatment, or even a cure, for the disease.

The owner of Station Square Restaurant tells us Peggy Poole, a woman living with Parkinsons, talked him into hosting the fundraising dinner.

The owner, who is also a chef at the restaurant, told 21 News a few of the tempting foods he is serving up for this fundraiser.

"Big pasta buffet, six different pastas, meatballs, salad, dessert; people get their money's worth and the money goes for a good reason," says owner Ocatavio Musumeci.

Poole was delighted with the outcome.

"We've had a wonderful, wonderful turnout," she says. "It's amazing to see the turnout and the generosity is unbelievable.  

The goal is to raise $5,000 that will be added to money raised at the Unity Walk in New York which will fund research.

Parkinsons is a disorder of the brain that leads to shaking and tremmors, difficulty walking and problems with motor coordination.
