All proceeds from this evening benefit Acworth's Horizon Programs.  This elegant evening celebrates the athletes that participate in Horizon’s programs and furthers the mission to strive for a better quality of life for children and adults with special needs.  Funds raised at this event help to keep league costs down for the athletes, maintain and replace adaptive equipment, upgrade the quality of program uniforms, and increase the number of participants and programs offered. 

The Horizon Ability Gala features a unique fine dining experience, charity auction, and live music from a jazz ensemble. Cocktail attire is required.
