Inclusion Connections and PawsAbilities have witnessed an incredible outpouring of support for one of its primary fundraisers, Gala FashionAbility 2018. We have seen many Kansas City-area companies and businesses step up to sponsor our Feb. 22, 2018 event. And we couldn’t be more touched.
This is an incredible sign of acceptance and inclusion in our hometown. People with intellectual disabilities who live in Olathe and Overland Park are working hard to live, work and play in their own community. With the programming provided by Inclusion Connections and the job training skills of its sister organization, PawsAbilities, it’s becoming a reality.
Gala FashionAbility 2018 is an evening of food, fun and fashion. Attendees enjoy hot appetizers, wine, beer and a special cocktail mixed for the evening by Presenting Sponsor Tito’s Handmade Vodka. But the best part is watching the teens and young adults we serve strut the catwalk in clothing that reflects their personal style and charisma. As you watch them flaunt their fashion selection, you will hear a little bit about each one. Each has hopes and dreams for continuing education, a meaningful job, loving relationships and independent living. It’s what we all want.
Inclusion Connections and PawsAbilities are working in tandem to make those dreams a reality with fun social outings, jam-packed summer camps, special classes for advocacy and independent living and, of course, job skills.
If you are a Kansas City-area business, we hope you will consider supporting this charitable endeavor that is close to home. Simply visit Gala FasionAbility 2018 to sign up to be a sponsor, purchase a table for your employees or individual tickets.
