Fifteen cities. Two Countries. One voice. This weekend, an event like none other will be happening here in the Quad Cities.

Gigi’s Playhouse’s annual I Have a Voice! Gala will be simultaneously happening in 15 cities on Saturday, March 4. One of the chosen locations is our very own IWireless Center in Moline. This 2017 Gala is a celebration for families, donors and other community members. The event goes from 5:30 pm through 11:30 pm and will include entertainment, a cocktail hour, sit-down dinner, silent and live auctions, raffles, and much more. Tickets are $85 and can be purchased through the Gigi’s Playhouse website at: www.gigisplayhouse.org/quadcities/gala. If you are unable to attend this year’s Gala but would still like to make a difference you can make donations through their site, as well.

The mission of Gigi’s Playhouse is to change the way the world views Down Syndrome through national campaigns, educational programs, and by empowering individuals with Down Syndrome, their families and their communities. They offer free therapeutic and educational programming to individuals with Down Syndrome and their families and are the ONLY nationwide network of Down Syndrome achievement centers. By breaking down barriers and changing the way the world accepts individuals with Down Syndrome they provide love, acceptance and hope for everyone.
