The goal is create an event of appreciation in our area ( Los Angeles County) for children with the common bond of having a sibling with special needs. These children are everyday hero’s that are forced to grow up quickly all while having to take a back seat to the needs of their siblings. They demonstrate compassion & understanding beyond their years on a daily basis. Our goal is to show them they are not alone, and their struggles are recognized and supported. This event will allow them to take a ‘night off’ from their siblings and have the attention redirected back to them. We hope they make friends & connections through this common bond. We plan to instill in them the benefits of their unique position & encourage them to make just as big of a positive impact on others as their siblings have made on those around them.
We would love for this to be a reoccurring event, something these kids can look forward to but our goal is funding this one kick off event. We plan on finding a donated venue as well as bringing in donated vendors that we have worked with in the past on charity events. But like in the past these vendors will still only be able to donate a discount ( which we are extremely appreciative of) so we will still incur costs.
We estimate attendance to be between 50-60 children.
Food estimations (Dinner , Dessert & Snack bar) : $600

Rentals & Tableware ( Tables, Chairs, Plates, Utensils, etc,) $ 500
