Let’s do lunch! The Reach for a Star Luncheon benefits the Henry Viscardi School at The Viscardi Center which educates children, K through age 21, with severe physical disabilities who often require life-sustaining medical treatment throughout the day. Henry Viscardi School is a specialized, accessible educational setting that provides a fully-enriched academic program, a variety of therapies, assistive technology and medical supports to students who may otherwise need to receive instruction in their homes or a hospital.
The Reach for a Star Luncheon features an elaborate cocktail hour, a sit-down lunch, a Chance Raffle and Silent Auction, and an entertaining program. Special guests at recent Luncheons have included: Kara Lindsay, famous for her roles in Newsies, WICKED, and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical; Jennifer DiNoia, formerly Elphaba in Broadway’s WICKED; Chilina Kennedy, star of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical; Hoda Kotb, co-anchor at NBC’s TODAY; the Angels from Kinky Boots; and Elise Testone, a finalist on American Idol.
Like all kids, the students of the Henry Viscardi School like to spend time together outside of school. Unfortunately, it is something they hardly get to do. Many live far away from one another and need special transportation because of their wheelchairs and medical needs. The proceeds from the Reach for a Star Luncheon support after-school activities, clubs, adapted sports and overnights for the students of the Henry Viscardi School.
