The Annual Down Syndrome of Central Texas Calendar Gala

It IS that time of year again, when the Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas rolls out their new calendar for the upcoming year! It's time for those calendar celebrities to put their best dress on, tie that tie and polish those shoes for it is their time to walk the red carpet and feel like a star! This year was a bit different that the previous years because the gala was moved to December and the venue was The Westin at the Domain. While we didn't have all the limos this year, each calendar celebrity still got to walk the red carpet into the ball room. It is such a joy to be there and experience this wonderful event. Every year the local Down Syndrome Association here (DSACT) puts together a yearly calendar to raise revenue for their cause. They always combine a local individual with Down Syndrome with a local celebrity for each month on the calendar and then they have a huge kick off party which is this gala. The individuals that star in the calendar for the year get the ultimate treatment at the gala. This year, the Biscuit Brothers made an appearance and gave a great concert. The kids loved every moment of it and had a blast dancing the night away. It is just the cutest thing you have ever seen! The photographer who volunteered ALL his time and photographed the entire calendar (which started in February!)is Bill Ledbetter from Image Eclectic Photography. He did a great job capturing everyone's personalities and putting together another beautiful calendar. It really is a great cause and if anyone feels moved in purchasing a calendar please click on over to DSACT and get yourself one!
