Physical Distancing Fundraiser for Children with Disabilities

Driveway Concert Series

2020 Edition

Benefitting children with developmental disabilities.

Uplifting spirits with music

In every challenge, there is an opportunity. 

Many organizations have been hit hard by Covid this year, and that includes CTC. In an effort to continue services for children, we got creative and worked together with our community to pull together what turned out to be a great and rewarding concert series. 

With physical distancing and great company, we successfully joined together to enjoy music for a great cause — helping children with developmental disabilities continue getting therapy services even when our physical doors had to close. 

We thank Jean Silbar, CTC’s founding and now emeritus Executive Director, for graciously opening up her driveway and beautiful yard for us to enjoy the Driveway Summer Concert Series. 

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you again next summer!

Thank you, CTC Community

Thank you to our clients, families, staff, and donors; your resiliency and generosity allows us to continue serving children in west Michigan through vital programs and services. This year, the concert series donations were vital to ensure that families could enroll their children into summer and fall programs regardless of their income situation. We couldn’t do what we do without you, and these children we serve wouldn’t have the enriching opportunities without your involvement. Thank you for being a part of the CTC Community. 

We are still waiting on a handful of pending donations, but we’re happy to report we will meet our $8,000 goal as soon as the last checks are in. Thank you! 

All proceeds will help CTC keep serving Grand Rapids area children with developmental disabilities this summer and fall.
