4. Dinners will be available on May 21 for all that ordered in advance. The deadline was May 7th to order.

Children's Village; The Impact is Huge

  • Serves over 6,500 children with special needs each year
  • Offers 30 different programs and services to families, all under one roof
  • Was built and is support by community benefactors
  • Children's Village is a place where children with special needs are children first and are defined by their unique qualities, talents, and potential; not their diagnosis.


The Memorial Foundation partners with the community to raise funds for Children's Village by hosting the annual Passion for the Village event which traditionally includes dinner, auction, and inspirational stories.
