Starry Night 2014 - April 25, 2014

Starry Night 2014 will be held Friday, April 25th, at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham.

Band of Angels is pleased and proud to be hosting our annual Starry Night Gala for 2014! Join us April 25th at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham to experience a fundraiser unlike any other. This year's theme, "Still Roaring," commemorates our organization's 20th birthday, with a slight nod to the Roaring 20's. We'll be looking back at the work we've done, at the amazing people who've helped us do it, and at the lives of the children with Down syndrome who have touched our hearts along the way. This year also heralds changes for Band of Angels, as we announce new programs and say a fond farewell to others.

Since last year, babies with Down syndrome and autism have been born, children with Down syndrome and autism have gone to school, and adults with Down syndrome and autism have entered the work force. Our work contributes to the inspiring successes of individuals with cognitive disabilities at every stage of their lives, and in order to continue to serve these individuals and their support networks, we need to maintain our financial resources. We pride ourselves on having an event that raises as much awareness as it does money, and this year will be no exception. From the moment you enter the Townsend, the experience will be unique and unforgettable. The message and vision of our organization and the moving words of our speakers are set against a backdrop of luxury and excitement. You will have access to rare wines for tasting, collector-quality artwork by artists with cognitive challenges, dinner praised by Zagat as one of the ten best restaurants in the country, and a variety of one-of-a-kind experiences offered through our live and silent auctions. All the while, you'll have the opportunity to learn about Band of Angels, and the incredible children we support.

Band of Angels is always growing and changing, because our loved ones with disabilities are always growing and changing. Old obstacles are overcome, and new challenges and opportunities arise in their place. At the start of our third decade serving the disability community, we'll be announcing bold new initiatives, and bidding a fond farewell to the programs we're leaving behind. We invite you all to join us, to guide the direction of Band of Angels for the next 20 years, and to be a part of the process. The future glitters with potential, but we need your help to get there! We hope you'll join our conversation, April 25th, at the Townsend Hotel.
