The Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada (DSOSN) has a major fundraising event in November 2013 called the Festival of Trees and Lights (for more information go to dsosn.org). At this event, attendees participate in a silent auction in which they purchase themed trees - decorated and complete with gifts underneath. All proceeds from the event will benefit DSOSN - which serves those with Down Syndrome in the Las Vegas area.
Emily Rawlings of Dynamic Music Therapy is contributing a tree to be auctioned, with Erika Comparoni and Kami Crowe on her design team. The theme is Muppets Winter Wonderland.
The tree is being decorated with handmade beaded snowflake ornaments - each unique to represent the uniquity of Muppets characters - and the uniquity of all individuals, including those with Down Syndrome. We would also like to add ornaments of muppets characters, which need to be purchased. Under the tree, gifts will include anything with muppet memorabilia - and will include themed gifts representing the personalities of classic muppet characters (jewlery and glamour for Miss Piggy, music for Rowlf, etc.). All of these gifts also need to be purchased.
We need your help to have the funds to purchase these presents! All donations are much appreciated! DSOSN is a non-profit agency and will provide receipts for any donations, as donations are tax deductible. Thank you for considering this cause.
