We were honored to be asked to provide sound and entertainment for the Shane and Wyatt Down Syndrome Foundation Dinner & Fundraiser at the South River Portuguese Club in South River, NJ. This event also happened to be hosted on World Down Syndrome Day (3/21) which symbolizes a third copy of the 21st chromosome in people with Down syndrome. Shane and Wyatt and their family are close to my family and our hearts, and we were more than happy to help them with their event. The event was hosted by Shane & Wyatt’s family and included guest speakers Sara Weir (President of the National Down Syndrome Society) and Miss New Jersey Cierra Kaler-Jones among others. They had an incredible array of items donated to their Chinese Auction, included a ton of autographed memorabilia, TV’s, Autographed Larry Bird Basketball, Mark Messier Autographed Jersey, a Signed Harn Aaron Baseball Bat and many more items. The food was buffet style, and was excellent. After the auction and the speeches there was also entertainment provided by SRE to dance the night away until Midnight.
I ask anyone who reads this blog, to please consider following the Shane & Wyatt Down Syndrome Foundation Facebook page, and to make every effort to attend next years event. If you cannot attend, every bit helps, and no donation is too small. All of the proceeds go to purchasing items (iPads, Baby Signing Times DVDs, & Toys R Us Gift Certificates, among other items) that directly benefit people and families with Down Syndrome.
