noc-banner2013The Bowen Law Group is proud to support the fourth annual Night of Champions, sponsored by the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS). The celebration will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2013 at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa and hosted by Savannah's own Jamie Deen. The public is invited to attend this event that celebrates the excellent contributions made by differently-abled adults who are employed, contributing members of our community. Local businesses that both hire people with intellectual disabilities and encourage other area businesses to do the same will also be recognized. According to the National Down Syndrome Congress Center, as many as eighty percent of adults with Down syndrome are unemployed. Low expectations and a lack of understanding about the great skills and wonderful work ethic many people with Down syndrome possess have contributed to this sad statistic. LDSS hopes to reverse this trend by encouraging area employers to give workers with intellectual disabilities a chance.

The 2013 Night of Champions is being held in the Ballroom at Westin Savannah Harbor Hotel and the evening includes the awards ceremony, a silent auction, dinner and cash bar. Doors open at 6 p.m. and business attire is requested. Tickets are $25 per person or reserve a table for ten for $250. Tickets can be purchased online here.
