Please know, this has NOT been an easy decision for Angi and I. Due to the Covid-19 Corona Virus and recommended “social distancing” (especially with the population we serve and guests who attend), instead of holding the Gala on October 17, 2020 - the V4DS is changing to a 4-day Online Auction.
The Online Auction will feature getaways, one-of-kind experiences, premium wine lots, and much more.
Bidding opens: Friday, October 16th at 8am
Bidding closes: Monday, October 19th at 7pm
A big thank you to all of our partners, vendors, sponsors, and supporters for your continued commitment to our cause.
We hope you’ll join us online!
Voices 4 Down Syndrome Gala is a spectacular event supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the North Bay. John and Angela Busick cordially invite you to the fifth annual Voices 4 Down Syndrome Gala, Saturday, March 14, 2020 at the Petaluma Elks Lodge.
This formal event begins at 5pm with a cocktail reception, followed by an elegantly crafted wine-paired dinner. Silent and live auctions will feature getaways, one-of-kind experiences, premium wine lots, and much more. The fun doesn’t stop there, during the after party guests will be inspired to dance the night as we pay tribute to those that give so generously while recognizing our Down syndrome community.
We are excited for the opportunity to be a small voice for our children, our grandchildren, our siblings, our friends and our neighbors. We hope to see you there!
All proceeds will benefit the Down Syndrome Association North Bay.
Enjoy the night together with your friends and family, ensuring everyone in your party can sit together
