MADISON (WKOW) — An event that raises money for people with Down syndrome is being held in Madison Friday evening.

The “i have a Voice, hear me roar!” Gala is a fundraiser for Gigi’s Playhouse, Madison’s only Down syndrome achievement center.

“Funds raised from the 2018 Gala will enrich children and adults with Down syndrome through vital programs such as one-on-one literacy and math tutoring, speech therapy, fitness classes, career training, social groups, and more,” said an organizer.

This year’s gala has a Roaring 20s theme. There will be hor d’oeuvres, interactive food stations, cocktails, silent and live auctions, music, dancing and more.

The gala starts at 6 p.m. and will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Madison.
