In 4 days, I will be attending my first ever SPD Foundation Gala, in partnership with the DTC Rotary Foundation. Not only does this promise to be a (much needed) night out, but the event as a whole promotes awareness and understanding of Sensory Processing Disorder for the community and helps provide needed funding to further the research and development of therapies for children and adults living with sensory processing disorder.
PLUS, I get to bid on stuff. That’s right! While I’m enjoying gourmet foods and live music, I’ll be putting my name next to some bids for some great stuff. These sponsors donated not only to help support the SPD Foundation, but also because, well… I asked. If you would, pay their sites a visit as a Thank You (or come by the Gala and bid on their donations).

Want to donate?
YOU can help support the foundation leading the way in the research and programs to help our kiddos with Sensory Processing Disorder. Even if you can’t attend the Gala, as a community, we can gather together and support the SPD Foundation through Giving First, “A Community Supporting the SPD Foundation”.
Where specifically does the funding raised go?
Donations to the SPD Foundation will fund research towards understanding behavioral and brain differences in children with sensory issues. Through our efforts scientists from around the world have joined our mission. With this knowledge, existing treatment models can be refined, new models can be developed and treatment effectiveness can be examined.
Donations to STAR Center will fund scholarships for treatment to needy families as well as help fund a new outdoor sensory playground.
The DTC Rotary Club is part of a worldwide volunteer organization that shares a mission to serve the community and those in need throughout the world. The DTC Rotary Foundation also funds a variety of international projects in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Kenya. These include clean water and sanitation projects, low-income housing, meals for undocumented street children, micro-credit loans and literacy projects.
