Gents should suit up and Gals should dress to kill. It’s an era of elegance – pinstripe suits and homburg hats, sequins and pearls. Enjoy fine foods, sip on the giggle water and dance the night away to live music. It’ll be the Bee’s Knees!

With the ban on alcohol, discretion is paramount. Admittance to the “exclusive” event is by password only. To learn the secret phrase, purchase your tickets, today!

 

Benefitting Unlimited Play:

By attending A Night at the Speakeasy, you will be supporting Unlimited Play, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that helps to plan, design and build fully accessible playgrounds. Other opportunities to support Unlimited Play’s mission at the event include a live auction, silent auction and more!

Play is a critical part of physical, emotional, mental and social development for EVERY child. Unlimited Play playgrounds allow all children – regardless of their abilities – to play together. But the benefits don’t stop with kids who have challenges. Able-bodied children learn and grow on accessible playgrounds by interacting with others who are in some ways different from them. They also allow parents and other adults with disabilities to play with their children – something that’s often not possible on a traditional playground.

Inclusive Playgrounds:

Especially for children with disabilities, play is therapy – both physical and emotional. On the physical side, children’s muscles need to be exercised just like anyone else’s. And most importantly, on the emotional side, children need to interact and socialize with their peers.

The benefits of fully accessible playgrounds don’t stop with kids who have challenges. Able-bodied children learn and grow on accessible playgrounds by interacting with others who are in some ways different from them. Accessible playgrounds also allow parents and other adults with disabilities to play with their children – something that’s often not possible on a traditional playground.

Every way you look at it, fully accessible playgrounds help break social barriers, and become an environment where everyone learns to respect and understand each other. Those are the kinds of lessons that can last a lifetime.
