Wondering about the Wonder Ball?

"This gala has been a vital component to our grassroots efforts that has helped Easterseals provide camping & recreational programs for those with disabilities and other special needs" says Colleen Gemmill - Vice President, D.E. Gemmill, Inc. and Wonder Ball Committee Member. As Colleen mentions, the funds from this mystical evening help to support a myriad of camping adventures for our clients from Project Beacon a respite camp for children of service members to BOWLING an opportunity to strike up new friendship while improving hand/eye coordination and socialization.
