PEP Gala & Silent Auction - September 16

Few post-high school options exist for adults who live with special needs. PEP provides an outstanding day program that promotes independence, social interaction, and employment opportunities for intellectually disabled adults. PEP receives less than 50% of its operating budget from government funding.  The balance is met through the generosity of the community through grants, donors, and fundraising events, such as this Gala. Join this year’s Gala at the Convention Center at Hilton Head Marriott Resort and Spa.
