Join us for an unforgettable evening of inclusion and fun for persons of all abilities at Center for Independent Living in Central Florida, Inc. (CIL’s) Celebrating Independence Gala. The event will take place this Saturday, June 23rd with over 150 disability advocates, supporters, donors, volunteers, staff, and clients coming together to recognize CIL’s successes of the past year and hopes for the future. The evening gives participants a window into the important work CIL does in the community for people with disabilities. In addition, we will present the Beverly Chapman Legacy Award to an individual who has worked hard to break barriers and create new opportunities for disability inclusion in Central Florida. Prior Beverly Chapman Legacy Award Recipients include disability advocate Dick Batchelor and Unique Abilities Partnership founder Andy Gardiner. The Celebrating Independence Gala offers an engaging program that includes a magnificent full course dinner, exciting silent auction, key raffle for a very special prize, and great entertainment.
By joining us at Celebrating Independence you are standing with our community to create opportunities for people with disabilities to live independently. We thank our many partners for making this event possible, and together we will continue to work towards making the places we live, work, and play accessible for everyone.
