Portland, OR. The Edwards Center 10th Annual Luncheon on October 6th raised $195,000.00 for programs and services for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The “Find One Hundred Ways” luncheon at the Multnomah Athletic Club featured Portland’s own contemporary jazz pianist, Tom Grant who posed for a photo with Jessica Leitner and Jean Edwards. Tom Grant became involved with Edwards Center because of his own special interest in services provided to people with developmental disabilities. Dirk Fournier of the Fournier Group was the Master of Ceremonies and was the presenting sponsor at the event. (Photo credit, Andie Petkus)
Tom Grant’s music is the inspiration for this positive and creative video.
From The Edwards Center:
We believe that people with Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, and other developmental disabilities have tremendous potential. That’s why we’ve created a lifelong plan of services to provide our participants with homes, jobs, and a chance to participate in the world around them. Since 1972 we’ve worked with our clients, their families, and their friends to ensure that adults with developmental disabilities have the opportunity to live and thrive in Oregon.
