Abilis Raises $400k with Virtual Spring for Abilis Gala

Abilis, a non-profit organization that provides services and support for individuals with special needs and their families, held its annual Spring for Abilis annual fundraiser on May 2. This year’s event was held virtually, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and pivoted from the planned in-person gala to a virtual Sing & Dance Party hosted by fitness and dance superstar Billy Blanks Jr. The event featured Billy Blanks Jr., and celebrity guests from the Broadway and dance worlds who all joined in support of Abilis and encouraged those at home to sing and dance along. More than $400,000 was raised for the organization — a record for Spring for Abilis — which will use the funds to provide continuity of services and new programs that the Abilis families rely on.  read more...
