Springer School and Center’s annual fundraising dinner will offer grown-ups a chance to be a kid again. A Springer Celebration! 2014, themed Let’s Play! An Evening as a Child, is set for May 1, 2014, from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m. In addition to dinner, cocktails and live and silent auctions, there will be a wide variety of fun activities, from playing with Silly Putty and pickup sticks to mini golf and tricycle races.
Local 12 WKRC-TV Sports Director Brad Johansen will emcee the program and conduct the live auction. Borcherding Buick GMC is supporting a raffle in which the grand prize will be the option of a 24-month lease on a 2014 Buick Encore or an $8,000 cash prize. The Encore is a sporty SUV equipped with OnStar, GMC’s auto safety and navigation system, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Routine scheduled maintenance is included for the duration of the lease. Some restrictions apply. Exciting runner-up prizes include a Reds Experience valued at $2,000, gifts cards for gas and groceries valued at $1,000, and His and Her iPad minis valued at $1,000.
Chairing the event is Springer alumnus Casey Boland, who attended Springer in the 1980s, and now serves on the nonprofit’s Board of Trustees. “I was honored to be asked to chair this year’s Celebration,” he said. “We’re planning some activities that will help people experience what it might be like to have a learning disability, and others that are just plain fun!”
Springer School and Center empowers students with learning disabilities to lead successful lives. Springer offers a day school for students ages 6 - 14 and outreach programs and learning disability resources for students, parents and teachers.
