Century High School, Rochester, MN

Ability Building Center (ABC) will hold the first annual Celebrating Abilities at Century High School on Saturday, September 16, 2017. The event features activities for all ages, including a special screening of the award-winning short film, “Learning to Drive.”

“Too often we hear what persons with disabilities cannot do. With Celebrating Abilities we wanted to focus on the amazing things they can do and are doing each day,” said Bruce Remme, ABC Executive Director. “The event offers a fun way for the whole family to learn more about the remarkable achievements of these individuals and the immense contributions they make to our communities.”

Doors open to the public at noon on Saturday, with food and beverages from local restaurants, face-painting and henna booths, a driving simulator challenge, games, success stories, displays, raffles, a silent auction and more.

Guests will have the opportunity to have photos taken with the cast and crew of “Learning to Drive” as well as Miss Minnesota USA International 2017, Rochester’s own Zoey Jantsan.

Admission to the event is free. Tickets to the film screening are $10 for adults and $7 for students and seniors. Admission to the after-party with director and cast is $25. Tickets can be purchased online at http://abcinc.org/celebratingabilities. All proceeds go to enriching the lives of persons with disabilities in the community.
