A Night to Shine – Focus on Ability

June 27, 2016


On Friday 8 July, thirteen young people will have their chance to shine, their chance to show the world their ability, and a chance to experience the opportunity to feel like a VIP.

"A Night to Shine" is an inspirational evening where 13 young people with a disability, aged between 18-25 years, will be presented to their family, friends and to their local community.

The event is a partnership between Special Needs Ability Program Providers (SNAPP), Liverpool Catholic Club and Share Care and celebrates their journey and achievements in reaching adulthood.

"I would like to congratulate SNAPP, Liverpool Catholic Club, Share Care and all those who have been involved in bringing this night together."

"It is an honour to be involved in this event and the night is a reminder that we should never focus on a person’s disability, but rather on their ability, and acknowledge their achievements."

"Their journey isn’t always an easy one and this night will definitely be an opportunity for them to shine," Chris Hayes said.

The night promises to be emotionally charged and inspirational, tickets are $50 which include dinner and entertainment and are available by calling Lucy Reggio, 0419 698 157.
