Easter Seals UCP Holds 4th Annual Small Miracles Luncheon on May 5

Easter Seals UCP (United Cerebral Palsy), a nonprofit serving children and adults with disabilities and mental health challenges, is holding its 4th annual Small Miracles Luncheon sponsored by Allegiance Foundation on Wednesday, May 5 at Carmel Country Club. More than 400 people are expected to attend and raise money to support critical programs and services for adults and children with disabilities.

Hosted by Debi Faubion Attori, the Small Miracles Luncheon is one of Easter Seals UCP’s signature fundraising events featuring personal testimonials of hope, progress and achievement from adults, children and their families living with special needs.

Allison Schweizer – one of the featured speakers – will share the story of her four year old son, Luke. Luke has a twin sister, but their differences go further than just their gender. Luke was born with cerebral palsy. Luke and his sister attend the Easter Seals UCP Children’s Center, an all inclusive learning center for children of all abilities six weeks through pre-K. In this educational environment, Luke has been able to thrive in his development and learning thanks to the support of his therapists who incorporate his specialized therapy into the classroom and give him a chance to be a regular four year old.

Easter Seals UCP serves more than 17,500 children and adults with disabilities and their families in North Carolina. Fifteen percent (15%) of those served live in the Charlotte metro area. Money raised from the Small Miracles Luncheon allows Easter Seals UCP to continue to serve a growing population and add more beneficial programs and services to meet the needs of those living with special challenges.
