The Purple and Green Gala was birthed in 2017, honoring those who've done outstanding work within the special needs community. Those who have tirelessly put in efforts to help make conditions and access to resources better.
Purple = Epilepsy Awareness
Green = Cerebral Palsy Awareness.
These are the two primary diagnoses of my oldest son, Anthony Jr. "Moo." These are what built me into the mother I am. These diagnoses prepared me for my youngest son, Lyric, whose disability, which is Autism.
This Gala has been rolling in my son's honor since 2017. Through those years, we've honored some pretty amazing people who have not only done the work but strive to help promote awareness and inclusion for the disability community.
