GiGi’s Playhouse Quad Cities’ “i have a Voice” gala committee and board of managers have been faced with a very difficult decision, recently. Due to COVID 19 and the recent restrictions for gatherings, they were faced with cancelling and/or rescheduling their upcoming annual gala. They then decided to think outside of the box.

The gala will go on…. same day, same time, only now online!

The 2020 “i have a Voice” Gala will be held virtually!

The tagline for this year’s event is “A Voice for All Seasons.” When they chose that tagline, they had no idea they would be entering a season and time of pandemic and crisis. They hope that you will join them for the first (and hopefully last) virtual gala! Same time, same date, different format although it will be more alike than different which is a saying GiGi’s Playhouse hears and says often!

While the look of the 2020 Gala has changed, the purpose has not! Friends are coming together to celebrate the achievements of local individuals with Down syndrome and the volunteers that make GiGi’s programs possible!

Invite your friends, family, coworkers and others to join you!
