Dare to Dream Gala
The Dare to Dream fundraiser is the Spina Bifida Association of Northeastern New York's (SBANENY) major annual fundraiser supporting programs and services for individuals and families living with Spina Bifida.
This fundraiser brings together individuals impacted by Spina Bifida, donors, community partners, providers, and friends to celebrate the accomplishments of the community. This event will include different components. The live event is a fun-filled evening featuring a cash bar, hors d’oeuvres and desserts, unique live and silent online auction items, musical entertainment, and our gala awards ceremony. Virtual participants can join in with the live and silent online auctions, view the awards ceremony, and enjoy an optional virtual wine tasting with a provided flight of four wines.
Spina Bifida is the most common permanently disabling birth defect compatible with life. Individuals living with Spina Bifida can experience mobility limitations including paralysis, incontinence, gastrointestinal disorders, learning disabilities, and executive dysfunction. In addition, individuals living with Spina Bifida are more likely to have hydrocephalus requiring the placement of a shunt, anxiety and depression, social challenges, latex allergy, and issues with weight management. Overall, Spina Bifida can impact a person’s ability to walk, learn, socialize, and live independently. Funds raised at Dare to Dream support SBANENY in responding to the evolving needs of the Spina Bifida community via programs and services.
