An Evening for a Child


April 24 @ 6:30 pm - 7:55 pm


Join us VIRTUALLY for our 20th An Evening for a Child on Saturday, April 24, 2021, a benefit to provide Pediatric Therapy services and scholarship assistance to children with disabilities who are uninsured or under-insured. 75% of our families depend on our scholarship assistance for their children. This year’s theme is “Celebrate Then & Now”.

Watch Parties
We encourage people to gather with friends and/or family for a “watch party” and enjoy the variety show together. We hope these parties will feel like the old days when we gathered around the TV together to watch Ed Sullivan, the Carol Burnette Show, the Muppet Show or Saturday Night Live.
