UPDATE: Special Kids 2020 "Virtual Banquet"

Aug 05, 2020 at 02:30 pm by WGNS


Murfreesboro,TN - Special Kids Therapy and Nursing Center will host their annual banquet as a “virtual event” for the first time on Thursday, September 3rd. All proceeds will go to benefit the non-profit’s work in serving local children with special needs. Supporters / guests are asked to RSVP by Monday, August 31.

Because of the adjustment to make this year’s Special Kids Banquet an online event, prices for “virtual seats” and “virtual tables” have been lowered.

In honor of the banquet’s 2020 theme, “Brave”, organizers will be celebrating the courageousness of the many who devote themselves to the service of others.

Supporters that would like to donate additional funds to match “typical” seat and table costs can do so while checking out.
