We had an incredible evening at our Eat, Drink and Be Giving Fundraiser at Mark’s Prime on April 14!

Because of your love and support we were able to raise over $20,000 to keep offering FREE therapeutic and educational programs for individuals with Down syndrome!

Thank You!!

Peter Ynigo, owner Mi Apa Latin Cafe, sharing about Churros for a Cause

Through the Churros for a Cause, Mi Apá Latin Café presented us with a check for $4,139.64 (that’s a lot of churros!!).

We are incredibly grateful for the awesome team at Mi Apá Latin Café who also created an incredible opportunity to share with our community about who we are and what we do!

Delta Sigma Pi, a professional business fraternity at the University of Florida, diligently fundraised for us throughout the Spring 2019 semester.

They presented us with a check for $7,044.79!! We are so proud of these amazing young men and women whose leadership and philanthropic talents will shape the lives of our GiGi’s Playhouse families.


We are especially grateful to all our sponsors, families, friends, and believers who helped to make this evening so much fun!

Check out a few of our favorite pics from the evening on our GiGi’s Playhouse FaceBook page.
