The ACT Down Syndrome Charity Masquerade ball was held in August and proved to once again be a wonderful night. Old Parliament House was a cosy and stylish venue with delicious food provided by Ginger Catering.
The band Hitparade provided a great dancing atmosphere with old and new favourites. It was wonderful to see individuals with Down Syndrome from the group homes attend the night. We can definitely learn a few dance moves from them! Thank you to all who supported the night.
