Fashion show set to benefit Morgan's Wonderland

Announcement

Hand In Hand - A Night on the Runway is a benefit conceptualized and organized by TMI high school student, Lauren Chu. Her goal is to help raise funds to support the commitment by Morgan's Wonderland to keep admission free for special needs children, helping to reduce the financial burden of their families.

Chu's goal is to raise $33,000.
Saturday, Feb. 18, from 7-9 pm, students from TMI and River City Christian School, Morgan Hartman of Monarch Academy, and alumni from Achievers Center for Education will model clothing provided by Macy's Department Store. They will walk hand in hand down the runway.

In addition, Reaching Maximum Independence, Inc. will present the first Special Needs Fiesta Court.
Miss Wheelchair of Texas, Amanda Hall, will emcee the event.

Chu is looking for more support with sponsorships and ticket sales.

Individual tickets are $20 and tables
for the semi-formal event start at $250.

Morgan's Wonderland is an amusement park for special needs individuals.

Located in San Antonio, it was built
in the true spirit of inclusion to provide a place where all ages and abilities can come together and play in a fun and safe environment.

Morgan's Wonderland, the world's first ultra-accessible family fun park, encompasses 25 acres of rides, attractions and activities for everyone, and all are welcome.

Morgan's Wonderland and the STAR Soccer Complex are located just northeast of downtown San Antonio at Thousand Oaks and Wurzbach Parkway.

This is the former site of the Longhorn Quarry and is directly across from Heroes Stadium, the new North East ISD Stadium and Sports complex.
