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 while raising needed funds that will help the people we serve go beyond the expected.
