A special thank you to Big Whiskey's, a Bentonville restaurant for partnering with our organization!
Last year they donated almost $700 to our organization. Thank you!!
World Down Syndrome day is celebrated every year on March 21 st because of the numbers in the date 3/21, which represent the three copies of the 21 st chromosome present in people with Down syndrome. The goal of the day is not just to raise awareness about the presence of Down syndrome in our world, but also about how people with Down syndrome can and do make meaningful contributions to society throughout their lives. As an employer of a person with Down syndrome, Big Whiskey’s has a special passion for helping people understand how valuable these individuals are. “People with Down syndrome are really limited only by society’s expectations of them and the lack of opportunities afforded to them because of negative stereotypes,” says Shane Miller, owner of the Big Whiskey’s location in Bentonville. “They can do anything if they are given the right opportunity and training.”
