Soiree of Stars Presented by National Down Syndrome Congress
Soiree of Stars will shine a light on individuals, organizations, and businesses that have made an impact in the Down syndrome community. The 2020 Honorees are: Meria Carstarphen for her work in the community; Kroger for their longtime support of the Down Syndrome Community; #EverydayHero, honoring self-advocates performing essential jobs in our community; Down Country for their outreach work; and Kennesaw State University for their inclusive postsecondary education program. Revenue raised from this event will support the work of NDSC, allowing us to continue to foster our Affiliate Program, a network of local and regional groups across the globe that provide support and resources to those with, or serving those with, Down syndrome. Funds raised will help continue to build programs and provide resources such as one-day summits and captioned webinars, in both English and Spanish, through our Center for Outreach & Education, whose purpose is to reach individuals, families, and professionals where they are.
