It’s (Variety) Showtime!

Can you feel the excitement? It was buzzing all around at our first big Variety Show planning meeting a few weeks ago – and so were we. More than 20 eager volunteers – including familiar faces and friendly new ones – came together at The Bean Hangar to share ingenious ideas for tasty food and drinks, fun décor and especially, laugh-out-loud entertainment (stay tuned for a big announcement about that next week.)

Our annual Variety Show typically raises an impressive 50% of the funds we use to provide special needs children with wheelchairs, adaptive bicycles, prosthetic limbs and the freedom of mobility. And, this year’s show promises to be even better.

Help us help children with special needs by putting Friday March 28, 2014 on your calendar. Be sure to follow our blog so you’re one of the first to know when tickets go on sale, and if you or your business are interested in sponsoring a table, please contact Deb Wiebrecht at
