The 23rd LBSA gala will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2018, at Carleton College’s Great Hall and Great Space in Northfield, Minnesota. The theme for this year’s gala is “Inspire. Unite. Build.”

Proceeds from the gala support the following programs:

Core Services

To maintain excellence in our level of care we need to retain and develop high performing staff, provide transportation services, and develop innovative program solutions.

Creative Arts

We provide a variety of opportunities to enrich the individual and community life of our clients through shared creative experiences in our Music Therapy and Art Programs.

Family Support Services

We help families navigate the world of raising a child with special needs and work to ensure a successful future.  We do this primarily through youth and adult respite events.

Pathways to the Future

We serve as a voice for people with disabilities and engage the community to advocate for: affordable housing, adequate respite resources for families and public policies that benefit people with disabilities.
