On December 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Black Box Theater in the Main Street Landing, award-winning comedic storytellers Sue Schmidt and Kevin Gallagher will be joined by special guest Melinda Moulton and live band The Brevity Thing in an all-new show benefiting the Vermont Family Network. ‘“Home for the Allidays” is for anyone thinking of the miles traveled in the name of family at holiday season,’ says Say It Forward producer and storyteller Susanne Schmidt. “These short, individual recollections reveal moments of triumph, heartbreak and hilarity around the kids’ and adults’ tables at the holidays.”
The event will open at 6:30 p.m. at The Black Box with a cash bar provided by The Skinny Pancake. Tickets are $30 and are on sale through the Vermont Family Network.
The mission of the Vermont Family Network is to empower and support all Vermont families of children with disabilities. Last year, the Family Support program helped over 1,500 families navigate the complexities of special education, healthcare and disability resources. The Children’s Integrated Services Early Intervention program provided home visits and developmental education to 544 infants and toddlers in Chittenden County. VFN support, information and trainings are invaluable to families of children with special needs and the professionals who serve them.
