Paint Nite

Inviting all creative spirits! Explore your inner artist while raising money for TVDSA!

We’re hosting a Paint Nite, where a local artist will assist and inspire us while we mix and mingle.

Paint Nite will donate a portion of ticket sales to TVDSA to increase the awareness around Down syndrome so that the whole community will accept and recognize the greatness we see in our loved ones, not just the differences.

So let’s get together for a night of creativity and cocktails for a great cause – please RSVP and register now by clicking the image below:

End the R-word

End the R-word

We created this video in support of the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign, an on-going initiative from Special Olympics and Best Buddies to eradicate the derogatory use of the word “retard(ed)” from everyday use and promote the inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Five siblings of individuals with Down syndrome in Idaho’s Treasure Valley volunteered to help us spread the word that their brother or sister with Down syndrome is not defined by their disability.

A big thanks to all those who helped us create this video by starring in it: Therese and Liam Murphy; Gabriela and Mikaela Olmos; Tess and Isabelle Scott; Tegan and Madison Maestretti; and Austin Schaffer and Aaden Vranish. And a HUGE thank you to Sara Cox for producing the video, and our amazing videographer who volunteered his time to create this for us, Zach Johnson.

Help us spread a message of acceptance and speak out against the r-word!
