This was Accent on Events third year participating in the planning and production of the GiGi's Playhouse Annual Gala. As most of you know this is a fabulous event for our community and each year it grows to more attendees. What is GiGi's you ask? GiGi’s Playhouse is a one-of-a-kind achievement center for individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community. GiGi’s Playhouse offers more than 25 therapeutic and educational programs that advance literacy, math skills, motor skills and more; all of which are free of charge.
After planning last years Gala we jumped right into planning this years. I was fortunate enough to have some connections to find the Guest Speaker ~ Heath White. Heath White connected with the audience in such a profound way. As I stood and watched not only him as a speaker, I watched the parents of individuals with down syndrome wipe the tears in their eyes connecting with every word that he spoke.
I encourage each of you to listen to the story of Heath that was featured on ESPN. He sent a great message to our audience. Heath White - ESPN
The night also consisted of a performance by the Cheer Gems which is the newest program at GiGi's. These Cheerleaders were fantastic. We went on with silent auction, live auction, dinner and dancing.
I LOVE being a part of such a wonderful event in our community. Below are the photos of this fabulous event. We are already looking forward to next year!!
