Christmas Luncheon 2018

Food-Family-Friends 

Each year MRI hosts a Christmas luncheon for the people we serve and their family/guardians. The lunch is a wonderful event to welcome families into our building and have an opportunity to interact with friends and family and our staff .

Prior to the lunch we had a prayer provided by individuals served at MRI. Shortly after the prayer there was a special message from MRI President/CEO Amy Bliefnick. Amy welcomed the guests and announced an exciting event coming up in February.

February 8th marks the date of Night To Shine, a prom for individuals with special needs ages 14+. The Tim Tebow foundation proudly sponsors the event and helps to make this evening as extravagant as possible. More information on the event is to come shortly so be sure to keep your eye out for more information on how to be a part of this event.
