High Point Village to Host ‘Dream-Filled’ Event For Special Needs
Evening to include live entertainment, a silent and live auction, a book signing, special guests, and much more!
The “Upon A Dream” event will feature Sam Shreffler, a young man with autism, who performed on “So You Think You Can Dance;”and Encore, an ensemble from Lubbock Moonlight Musicals, will feature Broadway and popular songs centered on the “Dream” theme. Kurt Kiser will serve as Master of Ceremonies and Nikki-Dee Ray will introduce a very special performance by High Point Village participants. In addition to the entertainment, dinner will be catered by Stella’s and there will be a live and silent auction.
Eleven High Point Village participants recently released their book, “Destined to Soar,” which chronicles their lives growing up as children with special needs. The authors will be at the event to autograph copies of their book.
“Everyone has dreams” said Doug Morris, High Point Village Executive Director. “At High Point Village, we dream of an enrichment center where those with special needs can learn life, job, and social skills. We dream of a residential community where those with Down syndrome, autism or other special needs can live independently in a safe and secure environment. The money we raise during ‘Upon A Dream’ can make that dream come true.”
The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. at the Lubbock Civic Center Banquet Hall. Individual tickets are $50 each and can be purchased online at www.highpointvillage.org or by calling 698-0015.
