On Friday, November 4, 2016, Independent Resources, Inc. (IRI) will hold its 13th Annual Disability Ball from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington, Del. This event – the only one of its kind in the country – brings together many different disabled communities, not only to have a good time, but, perhaps, to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  Because many disabled people never had the opportunity to attend a high school prom or other formal event, the Disability Ball was created.

At the Ball, guests can enjoy some social time, sit-down dinner (served promptly at 6:30!) and dancing to the music of DJ Mike Warren.  There also is the crowning of a King and Queen, and a photographer, Martin B. Selby Sr., BenMar Images, to record the event.

Make A Night Of It!
