A Celebration so Big, We Needed Four Days!

Fall 2022, we had 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 invited the public to be part of this four-day celebration.

With the public’s help, we raised just over $1 Million! THANK YOU!

Plan to join us for next year, September 23, 2023, at Morgan's Wonderland Camp for our 14th Annual Gala.

We kicked off the celebration with a smaller, intimate, Visionary Dinner Reception on Friday, Sept. 23.  The Visionary Dinner included a cocktail reception, a tour of The MAC, and an elegant, seated dinner.

This year’s annual TV special was dedicated to educating the public about the new Multi-Assistance Center at Morgan’s Wonderland. This one hour, commercial-free special was written, directed and hosted by Morgan’s Inclusion Initiative Creative Media Director, Leslie Mouton and aired on all 4 major networks between September 23rd – October 1.

Our Annual Gala is our largest annual fundraiser for Morgan’s Inclusion Initiative. Our 13th Annual Gala this year was held in the Morgan’s Wonderland Event Center on Saturday, Oct. 1. Famed television and screen actor Joe Mantegna served as keynote speaker. Joe has made more than 200 film and TV appearances most famously in “The Godfather: Part III” and in hit TV drama “Criminal Minds,” where he played Special Agent David Rossi.

On Sunday, Oct. 2, we invited the public to attend the Grand Opening Celebration of The Multi-Assistance Center at Morgan’s Wonderland (MAC). The free event offered the public a chance to hear from actor Joe Mantegna, learn about The MAC, meet our community partners, and take a tour of the new $45 million, 165,000-square-foot facility.

Meet The MAC

The Multi-Assistance Center (MAC) at Morgan’s Wonderland 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. Our unique care model, community partnerships, and our 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.
