Meet DSACK- We Support, Educate and Celebrate
Red Carpet Celebration: Presented by the Down Syndrome Association of Central Kentucky
We are having a film festival, and YOU are the star! DSACK is going to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day in style! We have partnered with the historic Kentucky Theater in downtown Lexington to put our own kids and adults with Down syndrome on their big screen, March 22. We have the whole theater to celebrate, educate and support each other and our community. You do NOT want to miss this!
World Down Syndrome Day is March 21, but since we will all be busy passing out donuts on behalf of DSACK, we are going to celebrate together on March 22. Join us to view DSACK’s new film, Meet DSACK – We Support, Educate and Celebrate and the film Just Like You-Down Syndrome produced by Just Like You, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit which makes films to answer kids’ questions about people in unique circumstances. The film Just Like You-Down Syndrome was made in collaboration with the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City to be used by parents and educators to answer questions and open doors to inclusions and friendships. And, it gets even better!
A picture of your loved one with Down syndrome playing their favorite sport, working at their job, volunteering in the community, sitting up, holding a cup, playing with a sibling, smiling or just being their beautiful selves will be shown on the huge screen for all to see. Simply email your best quality digital picture with a 2-3 word description to email@example.com. PHOTOS MUST BE RECEIVED BY MARCH 1. We will also recognize your loved one in person, so be there to get your round of applause!
This is an excellent opportunity to bring a friend from school, neighborhood or church; teachers; paraeducators; therapists; grandparents; Aunt Betty; Uncle Joe…Bring them all! We have plenty of seats and plenty of parking. Did I mention we will also have plenty of food? Of course, we will! All of this is absolutely free!! This is not a fundraiser. We want to show off our DSACK community, educate our friends and neighbors, and encourage one another. Let’s pack the house and send a message that people with Down syndrome are accomplishing great things, we are proud of them, and a better friend just can’t be found!
Spread the word, March 22, 10:30-noon, at Kentucky Theater, 214 E. Main Street, Lexington.
Don’t worry about parking. Main Street meter parking is free on Saturdays and there is an open parking lot, which is only about a block from the theater. You can drop off your family at the front doors of the theater where DSACK volunteers will be there to greet your family, while you park.
Directions to the free lot: From the front of Kentucky Theater, go to Upper Street and turn left, turn left on Vine Street, turn left on Hernando Alley, and right on Water Street. The parking lot will be on your right. Super easy!
