For Adults with Special Needs

Congratulations to Kathy and Danny Laszlo, organizer of DANI "Developing and Nurturing Independence." I hope the Toronto community will come out and support this fundraiser to nurture the independence of adults with Special Needs. I am priviledged to be honoured at this event with also Rabbi Joseph Kelman, co-founder of Reena, Carol Goldman, principal of Zareinu Educational Centre and Dr. Gerald Friedman, chief of pediatrics at York Central Hospital. Please view this article for more information on the upcoming GALA EVENT.

I don't think Kathy intended that. It's named after her son who no longer receives accomodations at the age of 21. She envisions creating work opportunities for him and others.
