On Saturday evening, we will host our traditional Awards Banquet to honor outstanding achievements in the Down syndrome community in various categories. This is a ticketed event, which includes a plated dinner and the awards presentation.
Immediately following the banquet, there will be an awesome opportunity for all attendees to DANCE the night away to the sounds of an inspiring self-advocate DJ – no ticket required.
