ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR)-- Gigi's says today's fundraiser is about more than just raising money, it's about raising awareness. Gigi's says they want our community to know that even our loved ones with downs syndrome are capable of participating and doing anything they put their minds to. Gigi's says the amount of support they see during events like this speaks volumes about our community.
"Our community supports Gigi's so beautifully," said Paula Capone, Executive Director, Gigi's Playhouse. "I am amazed at what an awesome community the Rock River Valley is. They support Gigi's Playhouse they support our loved ones with down syndrome, and when we do events like this you can see the crowd that comes out to support them it's pretty awesome."
Gigi's says their next big event is their annual no bull golf outing on September 11th at Rockford Country Club.
