Imagine a world where…

  • adults with Down syndrome have meaningful employment if they want it.
  • friendships between kids with Down syndrome and their typical peers last well beyond high school instead of the typical separation in elementary school.
  • medical staff give a diagnosis of Down syndrome to a new family with hope and confidence rather than fear and uncertainty.
  • new parents find hope as they walk the journey with others who have gone before.

This is what the Down Syndrome Association of Brazos Valley strives to be and provide to our local Brazos Valley community.

Now imagine yourself at our 5th Annual Down Syndrome Awareness Gala on Saturday, March 25th, at the Hilton Hotel & Conference Center in College Station! Come for the vision and the mission, but have fun being served by our celebrity wait staff while you enjoy dinner and dancing. We will have both silent and live auction, balloon pop, and raffle!

A table for 10 is $450 and individual tickets are $50. You may pre-purchase balloons and raffle tickets for $20. Cash bar opens at 6 p.m. and dinner is served at 7 p.m.

There’s never been a better time to be born with Down syndrome, help make the lives of all the babies born today even better!


Saturday March 25, 2017 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM CDT
