GiGi’s Playhouse Tampa Down Syndrome Achievement Center is set to host its 1st Annual Bowl for Turkeys Fundraiser on 11/12/2022
WHAT: In an effort to make the world a more accepting place for individuals of all abilities, on Saturday November 12, 2022, GiGi’s Playhouse Tampa is working alongside our network of donors and partners to host our Bowl for Turkeys fundraising event!
Visit the Bowl for Turkeys Fundraiser and register for the event.
WHY: Local statistics based on national population formulas suggest that there are 3,400 individuals living with Down syndrome in the Tri-County area (Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco Counties). The center currently serves over 600 registered families, 7 days a week. The purpose of this event is to raise funds so we can continue to offer no-cost therapeutic, education and career development programs, and to inspire our community and reaffirm that WE HAVE A PLACE that is ACCEPTING TO ALL.
GiGi’s Playhouse makes a lifetime commitment to support and empower families from diagnosis to adulthood, build confidence and send a global message of acceptance for all. There are currently 55 Down Syndrome Achievement Centers in the U.S. and Mexico with plans to open another 10 in the next year.
WHO: GiGi’s Playhouse Tampa is fulfilling the dream of the Down syndrome community of having a location where individuals with Down syndrome of all ages have a place to call their own, where they feel safe and can explore their abilities through proven programs with support and celebration.
Bowlers and non-bowlers of all ages are welcome at this fun-filled, family event! We are striving to gain the attention and participation of those in our community who are not familiar with our organization. This opportunity to celebrate acceptance and inclusion will hopefully change perspectives leading to our ultimate goal of global acceptance for all!
WHEN: Saturday November 12th, 2022 3pm – 6:00pm
WHERE: Pin Chasers – Midtown 4847 N Armenia Ave, Tampa, FL 33603
