"Forgotten Angels has never had an event like this before and we couldn't be happier about our program. We're honored to have Mike Huckabee as our keynote speaker and the Nash Family to entertain us. It's going to be a wonderful, inspiring night," said Renee McGuire, founder and CEO of Forgotten Angels. "For a $50.00 donation, people will hear from one of the leading commentators of our time, while helping to build a foundation for a more independent life for our Forgotten Angels."
Forgotten Angels' clients are often medically fragile requiring 24-7 care and management. Others are more physically fit, but all enjoy meaningful, productive activities. According to McGuire, the organization plans to teach skills that can be turned into collectible items. These items, from potted plants and lapel pins to napkins rings, will be sold at the Forgotten Angels Resale Shop and other locations in the area.
"This event will not only help us develop a rewarding and supportive program, it will also help us complete a desperately needed 1,000-sq. ft. activity room at our Day Habilitation facility," McGuire said. "It's our responsibility to take care of the weak, with the help of the community and by the grace of God, we'll do it."
Forgotten Angels provides residential care and day programs to individuals living with developmental disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and many other conditions. More information is available at www.forgottenangels.org
