Each spring the Irene Wortham Center celebrates the success of people in our community who work with individuals with disabilities and their families. The Wings of Hope Awards Dinner will take place at the new Event Center at Highland Brewing Company on Thursday, March 10. Among the honorees will be Linda McDaniel, director of ARC-Buncombe County, whose lifelong work in support of the disabled has made a huge difference in our community.
The event will also be a fundraiser for the Irene Wortham Early Learning Center, which provides high quality care, education, therapy, and meals for children ages six-week through five-years-old. The Center currently serves more than 100 children, with 50% having significant disabilities, and 95% coming from low-income households.
Tickets are $75 per person/$125 per couple. Food will be provided by Corner Kitchen and beer and wine by Highland Brewing. Corporate sponsorships are also available.
For 50 years and counting, Irene Wortham Center has helped children and adults with developmental challenges lead healthy, happy and independent lives. We believe in the value and promise of every person and strive to empower individuals to reach their full potential from birth to end of life.
