5th Professional Day
Our fifth Professional Day will take place all day on Thursday, July 27. This day is designed for professionals working in the field of CHARGE to share their work with each other. Presentations will be of a more technical nature, designed for sharing between professional peers. Families are welcome to attend but there will be no individual-specific questions taken.
There is an additional registration fee to attend – $175 per person (includes breakfast and lunch).
Grab your swimsuit and sunscreen and join us poolside on Thursday afternoon. Our pool party will give everyone a chance to meet up with new and old friends, mingle, have a snack and a splash in the pool. The pool party will be from 1:30 – 4:30pm. Snacks will be provided.
On Thursday evening we hold our official conference opening reception. Everyone will gather for a light dinner (provided) and some fun activities to help us kick things off!
On Friday afternoon, we have our information central session, an interactive session where professionals will be available to discuss their poster presentations and answer your questions. This is your all-access pass to the world’s leading experts on CHARGE syndrome.
We are thrilled to be offering our wildly popular sibshops again. These fun-filled workshops are designed for typically developing siblings of individuals with CHARGE syndrome who are 8-13 years of age. It’s a safe space just for them to meet, share, and have fun.
*Note: Foundation members get priority for sibshops registration.
Rachel Coleman Show
We are very excited to announce that, with the support of the Texas Chargers, Rachel Coleman from Signing Time will be joining us again on Friday evening at conference. This is sure to be a high energy, fun-packed show for both the young and young-at-heart.
Throughout the conference, exhibitors will be set up around the conference area. You will have lots of opportunities to visit with them, ask questions, and find out more about their products and services.
We are actively looking to add exhibitors, sponsors and advertisers to our event. The Conference provides a unique opportunity for companies to reach hundreds of families affected by CHARGE syndrome and the professionals who work with them. We expect over 1,000 people to attend!
If you, or someone you know, should exhibit, sponsor or advertise at the 2017 conference, please review our information packet or contact: David Wolfe at email@example.com or Brownie Shott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get ready for a PARTY! Saturday night is our big CHARGE-A-Palooza party. Fabulous face-painting, a non-stop dance floor, photo booths and awesome carnival games are just some of the fun things you’ll see on Saturday night.
Basket Raffle & Silent Auction
One of the best parts about Saturday night is the basket raffle and silent auction. This is one of the major fundraisers for the Foundation and lots of fun. You purchase tickets to drop into bags in front of your favorite baskets. Numbers are drawn out to see who wins. There will also be a silent auction of select items.
If you would like to donate something for the basket raffle and silent auction, please use this donation form. We also have a donation letter you can use to contact local businesses you frequent for donations as well. If you have any questions about the basket raffle or silent auction, please contact Neal Stanger at email@example.com.
