Annual Awards Banquet

The 2017 Annual Awards Banquet & Fundraiser was our best one in years!  Our agency had the opportunity to recognize those in the community for what they have accomplished to assist those with developmental disabilities and their families.

Thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors!

Throughout the years, many people have joined us in support of people with Autism, Down Syndrome, Asperger’s, Cerebral Palsy, and other developmental disabilities and their families. While raising money to support the programs and services offered is an important part of our work, raising awareness and supporting our community partners and the work that they do is just as crucial.  We could not do this without all the wonderful sponsors and those that donated during the Awards Banquet & Fundraiser.  Together we raised $6,400 for the 2018 Camp Courageous Camper Scholarship and a combined total of over $13,000 to continue the programs we offer to those with developmental disabilities.  Your dedication to our organization is worth more than words can express.  Thank You!
