Annual Gala Dinner -April 2017
 
We had our 2017 Gala Fund Raiser in April , completely sold out,  at Leonard’s Palazzo. A kick start of the event, celebrating month of autism, included attendees, key supporters and leaders from the South Asian & American community. The event brought together the resources available and need under the same umbrella to raise the awareness of it’s vision, mission and goals. Several distinguished individuals, dignitaries and community leaders joined hands to whole heartedly support this noble cause.The event was inaugurated with a special and traditional lamp lighting by key founders, committee, volunteers, supporters and community leaders. National Speaker Kerry Magro, (a young adult, diagnosed with a type of autism at the age of 4) who has talked at over 700 events an award-winning disability advocate, best-selling author of 3 books, movie consultant of 2 autism films, TV hosting his own local cable show) was the keynote speaker for the evening and shared his experiences. Mesmerizing performances by blind performers (singers, dancers, musicians), rocked the evening. The event also awarded children essay competition winners with cash prizes and Gift certificates. These kids participated in Essay Competition “I love someone with autism” in the beginning of the year and have been show casing their talent and support for the specially-abled at this very young tender age.

About Us:

The best gift someone can give is to be self-reliant. Education is a tool that helps one fight self-reliantly. Often, it is seen that the Specially-abled, physically and mentally challenged, struggle to enjoy the privileges and benefits of continued education & upbringing. At the other hand, often the families and friends of specially-abled struggle to find readily available, affordable services for their care and education. We all own the social responsibility to identify them and support them by educating them and their families of their needs and resources for their continued growth support to be self-reliant and self-respectful.

At Gift of life, a 501 (C) (3) organization, registered under EIN – 81-2839326, we aim at helping those with special needs – physically and mentally handicapped in the areas of health and education. We believe it is our social responsibility to work towards creating a more equal world, where everyone has access to education and Health care. We see ourselves as catalysts, promoting programs at the grass-roots level, which we aim at growing exponentially in upcoming years. We aim at working in support of the ones with special needs, through fundraising, advocacy and education as well as by providing and assisting with needed resources, to help them be better, socially acceptable, self-respectable, self-supporting individuals. Our goal is to have a better, healthier and happier world for children and adults everywhere – especially for the specially-abled.

Vision

Our vision is to support the needs of, as well as develop as many specially-abled as possible, to be self-reliant, self-independent individuals with growing acceptance of the community, friends and families.

Mission

Our mission is to generate efficient resources to support the specially-abled (physically and mentally challenged), through fundraising, advocacy, education and generating effective resources.

We work with generous donors like you; who are willing to help us advocate for the survival and well-being of every child and specially abled. Whether it is supporting these special children with school bags including year-end supplies or with uniform or books or with any material, promoting their hidden talent, assisting with their health and education needs, etc. the organization aims at helping along the way. We have started our exciting year with supporting these special kids with some school bags and blankets. An annual essay competition was also conducted to promote awareness and explore existing talent. This is just the beginning. Together, we can achieve unimaginable heights. 

Your generous support and motivation, to help accomplish our goals and grow further will come a long way. Any and every $ is important but we have outlined some nominal numbers in an effort to support our Gala.
