Experience Broadway here on Long Island at The Viscardi Center’s annual Reach for a Star Luncheon, featuring a special performance by Tony Award-nominated actress Jenn Colella, lead in the hit musical Come from Away. Colella has previously been seen in several big-name productions, including High Fidelity, Urban Cowboy, Chaplin, and If/Then.
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. The 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 at a hospital.
Like all kids, the students of the Henry Viscardi School like to spend time together outside of school. Unfortunately, this can often be a challenge. Many live far away from one another and need special transportation because of their wheelchairs and medical needs. Proceeds from the Reach for a Star Luncheon support afterschool activities, clubs, adapted sports, and overnights that make it possible for students at the Henry Viscardi School to have fun and socialize with friends outside of class.
This unforgettable afternoon includes an elaborate cocktail hour, a sit-down lunch, an eye-opening program, raffle prizes, and a silent auction.
