Each year, Extra Special People brings together members of the community with the children and families it serves for one special night: Big Hearts. It’s an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the abilities of some of our community’s most big-hearted individuals, while leaving their disabilities in the wings.

The Silent Auction is run online through a mobile bidding software. If you pre-register before Big Hearts, you will be able to skip lines and bid on items straight from your phone. Pre-registration will open with ticket sales here.

Over 2000 people were in attendance in 2019 to watch 60 contestants show off their talents and abilities in a fun-filled “pageant” where they are celebrated not for who they aren’t, but who they are. This is a heart-warming event you won’t want to miss.

You are invited to an evening of dinner and dancing on February 15. The banquet includes a VIP cocktail hour and tables of ten for you and your guests to enjoy a sit-down dinner after the moving show. Last year’s guests donated over $170,000!
