High Point Village to Hold Fundraising Event For Special Needs Individuals


A center that provides activities for special needs is holding a fundraiser this week.

High Point Village, an enrichment center that has activities and support for individuals with Down syndrome and autism, will hold their third annual fundraising event on Friday, November 9th, themed “Upon a Dream.”

The event will feature Sam Shreffler, a young man with autism, who performed on “So You Think You Can Dance,” and Encore, an ensemble from Lubbock Moonlight Musical will perform some songs centered on the “dream” theme.

Dinner will be catered by Stella’s, and the event will also feature a live and silent auction. The authors of the book “Destined to Soar,” chronicling their lives growing up as children with special needs, will also be in attendance to autograph copies of their book.

“At High Point Village, we dream of an enrichment center where those with special needs can learn life, job, and social skills,” said Doug Morris, High Point Village executive director. “We dream of a residential community where those with Down syndrome, autism, or other special needs can live independently in a safe and secure environment.”

The event begins at 6 p.m. Friday at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Banquet Hall. Tickets are $50 each, and can be purchased by calling 698-0015 or online at
