Great Banquet

GRANITE BAY, Calif., - Joni and Friends Sacramento will hold its annual special needs event called The Great Banquet at Bayside Church in Roseville on May 17.

The free event will be a very special evening for people with disabilities, their families and caregivers and will include great food, encouragement, and inspiration.

The evening will feature a delicious sit-down dinner, fun activities for children (magic show, crafts, games, face painting, clown, balloons), live entertainment, inspiring videos and more. For children or adults with special needs, a one-on-one buddy will be provided so they can fully participate in the activities.

"This will be an incredible event for all people regardless of their age or disability," said Dan Adragna, founder of Joni and Friends Sacramento and event organizer. "Our purpose for this evening is to honor, encourage, and inspire people in our community who are, in some way, affected by special needs and disabilities. We want them to know they are loved, valued, and an important part of our community."

The Sacramento office of Joni and Friends, a non-profit, faith-based disability organization, was founded in 2011. It administers significant programs such as Marriage Getaway, Wheels for the World, Family Retreat, Special Delivery and Through the Roof. For more information, please visit www.joniandfriends.org.
