Thank you so much for your support of our 7th Annual Season of Lights Gala on December 8, 2017, where we recognized the amazing contributions of Don Hindman and Johnson Storage & Moving . We appreciate you joining us to celebrate Don and his positive impact on Easterseals Colorado. 

Who could have known that in 1926, twelve local Coloradans would encourage a movement of change that would last 91 years? We acknowledge that it’s truly people and companies, like you who give so generously of their time and resources that ensures our mission to change the way the world defines and views disability lives on for another 91 years.

As our founder, Edgar Allen once said, it’s not what we take but what we give. Thanks to you, we are thrilled to announce the event raised $309,000!  These funds will create respite resources for adults and children with physical, cognitive and behavioral challenges to ensure that caregivers get breaks and have support and options for care. Be it recreational options, day programs or, soon, our overnight respite center...our goal is to ensure families and caregivers have the support they need to keep a loved one at home, the most affordable option for our families and our state.  
As Diane said that evening, “Discovery Club and Rocky Mountain Village Camp are welcoming refuges where Robbie can be a kid with other kids who won’t judge based on what he can and can’t do. He is well taken care of, is in a safe and secure environment and is having the time of his life. We, on the other hand, receive 100% guilt free time to spend with our daughter or my husband...a little bit of a social recharge which has honestly been life-changing...Easterseals is amazing because their caregivers aren’t overwhelmed by anyone’s disabilities; they open their doors to everyone.”

Thank you for attending and donating to this event. The role you played was significant, but as important – is the way everyone came together to recognize the needs of those in our community. Your gift generated a new synergy for giving and will not be forgotten.
