A Celebration So Big, We Need Four Days!
This fall, we have several special events planned to celebrate the grand opening of our newest venue – The Multi-Assistance Center at Morgan’s Wonderland! The MAC will revolutionize healthcare for individuals with disabilities. We invite you to be part of this four-day celebration.
We kick off the celebration with a smaller, intimate, Visionary Dinner Reception on Friday, September 23rd. The Visionary dinner includes a cocktail reception, a tour of The MAC, and an elegant, seated dinner. Those who attend the Visionary Dinner will also have seats to attend our larger gala gathering, “A New Day, An Inclusive Way!”
Our 13th annual gala is our largest annual fundraiser for Morgan’s Inclusion Initiative. This event will be held in the Morgan’s Wonderland Event Center on Saturday, October 1st. Famed actor Joe Mantegna will serve as the keynote speaker. Joe has made over 200 film and TV appearances. He is probably best known for his roles in “The Godfather: Part III” and his current role in the hit TV series “Criminal Minds,” where he plays Special Agent David Rossi.
The day following the gala, Sunday, October 2nd, we invite the public to attend a grand opening celebration at The MAC. The event is free and will offer the public a chance to hear from actor
Joe Mantegna, learn about The MAC, meet our community partners, and take a tour of The MAC. There will also be fun, family entertainment and a variety of items for purchase from local food trucks.

Meet The MAC!
The Multi-Assistance Center at Morgan’s Wonderland (The MAC) is at the center of our festivities.
Why is The MAC so special it requires four days of celebrations?
The MAC will revolutionize health care for individuals with disabilities. The unique care model, community partnerships, and navigators
are a game-changer in caring for the overall health of individuals with disabilities.
All too often, individuals with special needs get fragmented, uncoordinated health and social services from providers spread all over the community.
The MAC offers a unique, one-stop-shop model that provides medical and non-medical services for individuals with special needs of all ages.
