Come enjoy an evening of food, music, and live entertainment from Susan Greenbaum. We are pleased to announce that Bill Fitzgerald, news anchor for WTVR CBS 6, will be our emcee. Attire for the event is business.
The disAbility Law Center of Virginia (dLCV) helps people with disabilities and their families. The dLCV also works with communities on issues related to accessibility; housing; education; employment; transportation; medical needs; and monitors institutions serving people with disabilities.
We are pleased to announce that Kathy Pryor has been named the recipient of the Darrel Tillar Mason Excellence in Advocacy Award.
This award is presented to an individual or group whose work embodies the spirit of the mission of the disAbility Law Center of Virginia, namely to fight abuse and neglect and to encourage people with disabilities to have choice, independence, and inclusion in all aspects of life. This year, the Foundation chose to honor an advocate who has worked on behalf of elders with disabilities. Ms. Pryor is a staff attorney specializing in elder law at the statewide nonprofit agency Virginia Poverty Law Center and has a career serving the elder community that spans nearly 30 years. Read the full press release.
A Table Host commits to invite a full table of 10 people, or a half table of 5 people to the Gala. This gives you the opportunity to have a fun evening out with friends, family or colleagues while supporting a good cause. You simply register as a Table Host on our Eventbrite page and then email us a list of your guests.
Please be a sponsor! Your sponsorship, tax deductible, of our gala will allow us to continue special projects and promote and protect the rights of people with disabilities in Virginia. Last year’s sponsors enabled the dLCV Foundation to fund $12,000 towards special projects.
These projects include producing a video to show people with disabilities how to setup an advanced directive for their health care, holding special education clinics to educate parents on how to protect their children’s rights, and conducting a Coming of Age Conference to help young people with disabilities transition into adulthood.
