GiGi's Playhouse event to help give a voice for Down Syndrome

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

A group that provides teaching and support to those with Down Syndrome is raising money to help serve more Siouxlanders.

GiGi's Playhouse was started in Chicago ten years ago by Nancy Gianni, when her daughter was born with Down Syndrome.

Now, there are more than a dozen other centers including one in Sioux City. It opened in 2009 and the numbers have grown steadily since.

GiGi's Playhouse is hosting its "I Have a Voice" gala on Saturday, February 23, at the Marina Inn in South Sioux City, Nebraska. Besides dinner, the event includes both a live and silent auction.

Tickets are still available. They're $75 a piece or a table of eight for $600. They can be purchased by clicking here or by calling (712) 226-PLAY.
