Nearly 450 guests attended the 8th Annual Disability Ball November 11 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington, Del. Sponsored by Independent Resources, Inc. (IRI), the event brought 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 enjoyed a social hour, seated-served dinner and dancing to the music of Just Kidding Around, featuring D.J. Mike Warren. There also was a 50-50 cash drawing, door prizes, the crowning of a King and Queen, and a photographer to record the event.
