Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society Issues Call For Nominations For 2023 Night Of Champions
The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) is seeking nominations for its 14th annual Night of Champions on Friday, May 12, 2023, from 6-11pm at The Savannah Convention Trade Center on Hutchinson Island. The multifaceted event includes recognition of some of the area's outstanding employers of differently abled people, and the public is invited to nominate businesses for this recognition.
Employee nominations may be completed online at https://ldssga.org/
Meanwhile, the LDSS reminds people that the event is more than an awards ceremony. It is a showcase for what can happen when employers are open to the idea of including differently abled people in their workforce. Besides hearing the success stories from the honored businesses, attendees will learn first-hand about the rewards resulting from inclusive hiring. They can also leave the event with contacts of potential employees.
He recalled a Night of Champions a few years ago where Chris Smith, owner of several Five Guys Burgers & Fries, attended and ended up hiring five differently abled people that evening, and where dermatologist Dr. Sydney Smith also hired several people.
The evening will include a recognition ceremony, a silent auction benefiting LDSS and a cash bar. Dessert, coffee, the conclusion of the silent auction, and a hiring expo will be held in the entry salon of the Trade Center immediately following dinner. Please plan on staying to meet and mingle with our past Champions and perhaps hire a future Champion!
LDSS is seeking sponsors to support Night of Champions as it raises money to sustain the programs it offers throughout the year, including Camp Buddy for children with Down syndrome, its annual Buddy Walk in Forsyth Park and its monthly support meetings for the families and friends of individuals with Down syndrome.
To become a Night of Champions sponsor, to donate an item for the silent auction or to reserve tickets, visit https://nightofchampions.org. Individual tickets are $100 and tables of ten can be reserved for $1,000. If you'd like to sponsor a past Champion and other guests, two additional tickets can be purchased at the time of reservation. If you'd like a past Champion to sit with you at your table, please let us know. For additional information, email email@example.com.
