It is our mission to provide opportunities that allow people of all ages with disabilities greater independence, self-sufficiency, and participation in our community. When you buy tickets, join as a sponsor, bid on an auction item, or donate an item, you help make a real difference in our community.

We hope to raise $150,000 this year to replace aging vehicles. We currently maintain a fleet of 15 vehicles. These vehicles are used daily to transport participants to and from our campus to pparticipate in community activities, classes, and events; and to assist in getting them to and from their jobs. The average age of our fleet is 21 years old and the team often puts 60,000 miles on a vehicle annually. We have 2 wheelchair accessible minivans, 2 sedans, and a 12 passengar wheelchair accessible van that have seen their last trip on the pavement. We need to replace all 5 vehicles in the next year.

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. The money raised stays 100% local and ensures that Tesh is a place where we continue to reach for the stars.

Thank you to our 2023 sponsors!

For a Good Cause

All proceeds from our events support the clients, programs, and facility upgrades here at Tesh. Join us and make a difference as we gather for a common goal of supporting the children and adults with disabilities in our community.

Your Impact

Help A Child Attend Camp Independence

Tesh provides opportunities for children to increase their social skills during the summer day camp and the after-school program. A $1,500 donation sponsors a child for the summer program.

Sponsor a Teen

The first job can be a life-changing experience for any teen, especially one with a disability. Providing a safe, fun, and supportive experience tailored to each teen is a focus for Tesh. Supporting this experience can change a life!

Support Independent Living Skills

Self-sufficiency and independent living skills are essential for the quality of life of a person with disabilities. Community access activities like meal planning and shopping provide opportunities for growth and development. Sponsor a client at $1,000 to attend our independent living classes each year.
