Y Pierre Productions presents The 2014 RISE Awards, a black tie, red carpet event that will honor and celebrate the accomplishments of advocates with Down syndrome (Ds). RISE (Rising in Spirit of Expectations) is an event filled with live entertainment and special presentations for the three honorees.
The RISE Awards is to enlighten and inspire the audience of the achievements of individuals with Down syndrome by highlighting and celebrating the stories of the honorees.
Too often we hear about limitations and things that persons with Ds are incapable of, but some are musicians, actors, painters, dancers, advocates, teacher assistants, college students, entrepreneurs and graduates. But these are the stories that are not often seen or heard. RISE is a platform that will be utilized to tell these stories and further spread positive awareness.
The 2014 RISE Awards will be held at the Porter Sanford Performing Arts & Community Center, Decatur, GA on Friday, November 7, 2014.
