Embassy Suites High Hopes Auction

Embassy Suites hotel in Cool Springs is hosting the fundraiser “12th Annual Hats Off To High Hopes” this Staurday, October 24.  The event benefits High Hopes, an inclusive preschool and pediatric therapy clinic.  Sponsors include American Constructors, Enterprise Electric, Sonia & Butch Hoover and De & Jackie Thompson.  Here is a description of High Hopes mission from their website:

High Hopes fosters learning and growth in a unique environment, where diversity and acceptance are celebrated.  In the Inclusive Preschool, young children gain a foundation for life-long education, with typically developing students learning alongside peers with special needs.  High Hopes’ state-of-the-art Pediatric Therapy Clinic offers therapy services to children and adolescents to help them gain independence, despite physical or mental obstacles.  All of these efforts, combined, strive to make a proactive difference in the lives of youth to lessen the need for reactive services in the future.”
