I feel so blessed and honored to get this opportunity to address our entire GiGi’s network each quarter to show you what we can do together! Last weekend we opened our 56th location in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Orange County is right behind them in November! Like EVERY GiGi’s Playhouse, these playhouses are not built by a bunch of lifelong friends or a corporation with tons of money. They are not built by the state or government. They are built by virtual strangers who all bond together as volunteers for the greater good. They roll up their sleeves, they hit the streets, they laugh, they cry, they fight, they beg and they SUCCEED! THEY make all this happen and then continue to serve their families and every one of YOU makes all this possible! Thank you!
In November, GiGi’s Inc hosts our Annual Leadership Conference in Chicago. 61 GiGi’s Playhouse locations and startups unite for a jam-packed 5-day GiGi’s Leadership conference full of education, inspiration, training and tons of fun! With 71 speakers, 85 break-out sessions, and our adults helping to host, it is sure to be something your Playhouse will not want to miss!

Quick Mom brag! From singing the National Anthem at Wrigley Field, to Fox and Friends in NYC, to the Country Music stage in Missouri, GiGi has been representing and inspiring this summer! We are so grateful for her determination and for the programs at GiGi’s Playhouse that helped her overcome the unique challenges individuals with Down syndrome face and allowed her to achieve her dreams! Her poise during the Fox interview really showed the skills she learned in the GiGi’s Ambassadors program
Thank you ALL for accepting GiGi and all her friends and providing them with the programs, skills and courage to be the best they can be!
