My children attend The Frazer Center in Lake Claire. It is a wonderful, non-profit inclusive school and adult program that allows children and adults with special needs (and without) to become as independent as possible. The children’s program brings kids of all abilities together to learn alongside each other and the adult program teaches valuable life and job skills that enable engagement in the larger community.
This year, The Frazer Center and the Parent/Teacher Council are hosting a wine & beer tasting and silent auction to raise money for the school. The money raised enables The Frazer Center to continue purchasing special equipment, providing scholarships to those in need and offering teacher’s educational development. Below is the invitation with further details. I hope you will consider attending.

Why: The event aims to raise $15,000 to directly benefit The Frazer Center, where people at all levels of ability and disability gather, learn and flourish together. For more than 60 years, The Frazer Center has helped thousands of children and adults with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism and other special needs become as independent as possible. The children’s program brings kids of all abilities together to learn alongside each other and the adult program teaches valuable life and job skills that enable engagement in the larger community.
