Special Kids Therapy & Nursing Center is pleased to announce its Banquet will be held on Thursday, September 27, at Middle Tennessee Christian School in Murfreesboro. Entertainment will be provided by Logan Blade, a 26-year-old non-verbal autistic young man who plays, sings and lives for his music. Dinner will be provided by Demos' Restaurant and Peter D's.
"Special Kids is delighted to have Logan entertaining our guests," says Rachel Braziel, Special Kids event coordinator, who is organizing the event. "Logan was diagnosed with autism at age two. Today he cannot talk in conversation, but he can sing like an angel. Logan is amazing and has performed all around the country, even on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry with county music star, Josh Turner."
The theme for the banquet event is "An evening sharing and shining His light" based on John 8:12 which says, "Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, 'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'" The Banquet will also feature children and families impacted by the Special Kids ministry.
Braziel is joined in planning the event by 10 committee members who have invited the community to support Special Kids through purchasing seats and sponsoring the evening. The Banquet committee includes Mack Barrett, Wanda Curtis, Lisa Dugger, Vicki Eastham, Linda Kaufman, Angie Kleinau, Toni Laubacher, Brenda McFarlin, Kimberly Robertson and Beth Ussery.
The special event will commence with a silent auction at 5:30 pm to be immediately followed by dinner from Demos' Restaurant and Peter D's. Tables of eight are available for $800, and individual tickets are on sale for $100. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available as well.
