2016 Ability Luncheon
5/3/2016

11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Sheraton Kansas City Hotel

Our new Ability Luncheon celebrates helping children and adults with disabilities soar in today's world. The event is an outgrowth of our new union with Children's Therapeutic Learning Center. We chose to combine two of our signature events - An Affair with RIKC and the Bluebird Luncheon – into one single event. The Ability Luncheon will continue the traditions and legacy of both agencies to support our programs.

We are pleased to have Boston Marathon bombing survivor, Jeff Bauman, as our guest speaker. Jeff's journey from tragedy to triumph, the hard work, collaboration with therapists, and dedication of his support network are emblematic of the important partnership we provide to our patients and their families. In addition to speaking at our luncheon, Jeff will be visiting our facility to provide encouragement to our patients whose journeys have just begun. We’re so thrilled he’s able to join us. We invite you to join us too!
