Event Details

On September 6, 2014, High School District 214 will host a fall celebration benefiting Down Syndrome research.  Erin DeLuga's (Associate Principal of Instruction at WHS) daughter, Emma, was born with Down Syndrome in 2012, and Erin's experience of watching her grow and thrive with joy and determination has inspired her to host an event that encourages acceptance and celebrates the diversity and potential of all children and all District 214 students.

 

We’re soliciting donations to help make this event the success we know it can be. It will include children’s activities, live music, a raffle, speakers and much more. Monetary gifs can be made directly to Wheeling High School, the site hosting the event. In-kind gifts benefitting the event’s raffle can also be sent directly to (or dropped off at) Wheeling High School, in care of Erin DeLuga or Kathy Valin.

 

 All donations collected the day of the event will be split between Gigi’s Playhouse and Ups for Downs.  These are nonprofit organizations that promote the achievement and advancement of individuals with Down Syndrome.

 

In District 214, our staff works every day to meet students where they’re at emotionally, intellectually and socially. This event is intended to celebrate that spirit of success, and embrace our responsibility to inspire all students to reach their full potential. We also believe in the power of community, and have seen firsthand at all our schools what can be accomplished through influential community partnerships.
