DRA’s 25th Anniversary Gala

Four Seasons San Francisco

Thursday, October 25, 2018 at 6:00pm

Celebrating 25 years of advancing civil rights for people with all types of disabilities nationwide

We are excited to invite you to sponsor and/or attend Disability Rights Advocates’ 25th Anniversary Gala.  This festive soiree will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco on Thursday, October 25th, 2018 and honor technology innovators who are modeling disability inclusion and integration.

DRA is extremely grateful for our event sponsors who have committed to date.

Event sponsors and guests will enjoy conversation, drinks, and appetizers overlooking the San Francisco skyline followed by a seated, sumptuous dinner and inspiring stage presentation.

We will celebrate DRA’s important impact over the last quarter century and raise critical funds to establish, in perpetuity, the Larry Paradis Legacy Fund.

Larry, DRA’s late co-founder, was a pioneer in many areas—one of those being ensuring people with disabilities could access technology, in all of its forms, as it develops at a rapid pace.  Larry brought some of the first cases addressing accessibility of websites, technology in healthcare settings, kiosks, point of sale devices, digital course curricula, and the list goes on.  It is only fitting that in this 25th anniversary year, when we’re raising funds to support Larry’s legacy, that we identify and honor technology innovators who are modeling disability inclusion and integration.

The benefits of sponsoring go far beyond the time we will enjoy together.  By supporting the event, you enable DRA to make Larry’s vision a reality:

“We are committed to using the law as in instrument for social change to make the world a fair place for people with disabilities.  We are focused on changing institutions and the entire fabric of American society so that people with disabilities have a fair shot at being full participants.”—Larry Paradis, 2016

Be a part of this incredible evening and support a worthy organization by completing a sponsor benefit form today.

Individual tickets will be available in September.  Even if you are unable to attend, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution.
