Let’s do lunch! There’s no need to travel to the Great White Way this spring as the annual Reach for a Star Luncheon will feature Kara Lindsay, currently playing Cynthia Weil opposite Chilina Kennedy, in Beautiful—The Carole King Musical. Ms. Lindsay has also performed in Wicked (Glinda) and Newsies (Katherine) and will sing Broadway songs from different shows at the event . Ms. Kennedy, who stars as Carole King in the award-winning musical, performed at the Luncheon in 2016.
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.
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.
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. For more information about tickets and sponsorships, please contact Linda Tibbals at 516.465.1595 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
