Join us at the Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf, IA for the 2019 “i have a Voice” Gala. This event is a celebration for families, donors and other community members. It is an opportunity to celebrate achievements and continue to change the way people view Down syndrome. You can be a hero in the lives of children and adults with Down syndrome by attending or becoming a sponsor.

The evening will feature entertainment, cocktail hour, sit-down dinner, awards, silent and live auctions, raffles and more! Emcee, Dave Levora from Brewed TV and iHeart Radio will be back again this year.

The theme this year is a masquerade ball. However, no special attire is required, it is black tie optional.

Plus, GiGi’s participants will be showcasing their talents (and dance moves)!

$90 per person, $170 per couple, $680 per table of 8 

Reservation deadline is March 1, 2019 

Please use the “For more information” button below to see additional information about the event including a FAQ page and silent auction items! You don’t have to be present at the event to participate in the auction. Silent auction bidding takes place via the online bidding platform.
