The 2017 Champions Place Gala was a huge success!
Almost $600,000 was raised during the evening.
350 attended to show their support, including Brian Kemp, Secretary of State and a number of state senators, state representatives, local city mayors and council members.
The evening featured the capabilities and potential of the 30 young adults with physical disabilities in attendance.
Honorary Hosts Vince, Barbara, Daniel, Suzanne, and Matthew Dooley shared both the trials and the joy their family has experienced as Matthew and his parents have dealt with the challenges of cerebral palsy.
Georgia Tech Tools for Life representatives Liz Persaud and Ben Jacobs, along with Titan Trey Quinn, shared the power of assistive technology and how their partnership with Champions Community Foundation will benefit many young adults with physical challenges.
Champions Place will be one of the nations first shared living communities for young adults with physical disabilities. It will enable these young adults to live independent and productive lives in their local community.
