  On Saturday, February 3, 2018 more than 700 people attended the 2018 Dancing with Our Stars Gala, presented by ADS. Guests were entertained during cocktail hour by The Magic of Russo, silent auction, wine pull, gift card grab, and photobooth, sponsored by The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.  Guests were treated to two amazing performances by 36 adults with Down syndrome, choreographed by Arthur Murray Dance Studio. DSACO honored Dr. Stephanie Santoro for her work in the Down syndrome community, both locally and nationally and, Beth and Joel Stanley shared their story about their daughter’s diagnosis and how connecting with DSACO was made easier due to the work of DSACO’s Ds Medical Edge Program.

Keep checking back, photos will posted in a few weeks.
