GIGI’S PLAYHOUSE ANNAPOLIS is slated to open its doors late Spring of 2017. This well established national non-profit organization with 31 locations (and more emerging) is seeking to open GiGi’s Playhouse in Annapolis, which will be the first of its kind for the state of Maryland. Through GiGi’s Playhouse Annapolis, over 30 educational, therapeutic, health and wellness, as well as career focused programs specifically designed by therapists, educators and parents will be offered free of charge to families with children of all ages who have Down syndrome.
“I am honored to join GiGi’s Playhouse Annapolis to celebrate bringing this invaluable resource to Marylanders,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “With the opening of the first GiGi’s Playhouse in Maryland, right here in our state’s capitol, Marylanders with Down syndrome and their families will have access to an array of resources and programs designed to create positive awareness, foster acceptance, and enhance quality of life, and build connections among the community.”
Funded primarily through donations, grants, and fundraisers, GiGi’s Playhouse Annapolis is hosting the Mythics-Emergent “Believe in our Build” inaugural fundraiser on Saturday, July 23rd from 7 pm to 10 pm at the Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis dealership. The event will offer delicious food and drinks from local stores, restaurants, and catering companies, like Whole Foods, Nando’s Peri Peri, Bowl of Cherries, Cakes by Rachael, Mills Wine and Spirits, and Red Red Wine Bar. There will be good music and a great silent auction. Many businesses, like Title Sponsor Mythics-Emergent, Host Site Sponsor Sheehy Lexus, Presenting Sponsors Bel Air Auto Auction, Manheim, and IAA-Remarketing and Hard Hat Sponsor All American Intelligent Solutions have already shown their support by sponsoring this event and providing the necessary dollars to open the doors for GiGi’s Playhouse Annapolis.
