For 100 years Easterseals has been the indispensable resource for people and families challenged by disabilities. Now, as America faces a broad range of new issues, we make a major, positive, life-changing difference in the lives of people and families challenged by today’s disabilities. The work we do every day is redefining disabilities for the 21st century.


Easterseals hosts two signature events each year: the annual Golf Classic and the annual Gala. These signature events, along with third-party events hosted by our parnters, are vital to our organization.

With state funding becoming more and more unstable, we increasingly rely on the philanthropic support that these special events generate.

There are many ways to get involved in our special events, including sponsorship and volunteering. For more information about how to get involved, please contact Sara Ray Stoelinga, President & CEO at
