Special Events

Special events are an important and fun way to help Ability Beyond continue to discover, build and celebrate the ability in all people. Everyone — from individuals and family members to corporations and community organizations — who volunteers, attends or sponsors our fundraising initiatives is helping us meet critical financial goals. We invite you to join us and celebrate with our friends and donors to raise the needed funds that will help the people we serve go beyond the expected!

Gala & Beyond

Join us for our 2024 Gala & Beyond: Night of Reflections on Saturday, April 27, 2024 at the Amber Room in Danbury, CT. This evening, we look forward to reflecting on the impact we've made together, hear inspirational stories of independence as well as honor a very deserving community leader with the Robert S. Young Humanitarian Award!

Golf & Tennis Tournament

Our 2023 Golf and Tennis Tournament saw more than 150 players gather in Danbury for a fun-filled day of competitive play, delicious food and prizes. Pickleball - everyone's new favorite sport - proved to be a successful third sport added to the tournament, which raised more than $117,000 in support to benefit our programs and services.

Autumn Breakfast

Our 2023 Autumn Mental Health Breakfast saw our generous community gather to raise more than $100,000 in support of Ability's mental health services. We are so moved by the leadership and advocacy of our 2023 honorees: Eric Foss, Charles Coretto and Tracey Dolan as well as their extraordinary work on national, regional and local levels to destigmatize mental illness and saving and improving lives.
