UCPIE Hosts “Life Without Limits” Champagne Luncheon

March 28, 2022

The annual “Life Without Limits” champagne luncheon returns in support of families who have a loved one with special needs such as cerebral palsy, autism, down syndrome, epilepsy and other developmental and intellectual disabilities. After postponing their 2020 and 2021 luncheons due to COVID, the United Cerebral Palsy of the Inland Empire (UCPIE) is excited to bring families and friends together once again.

All are invited to attend on Saturday, April 30, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage. The fun-filled afternoon, sponsored by Coachella Valley Wellness Foundation, includes amazing silent auction packages, champagne, lunch and valet parking.

Entertainment includes musical selections by Keisha D, celebrity guest appearance by RJ Mitte and performances by UCPIE Karate Kids and High Hopes Dance Troupe. The glamorous Keisha D has been singing in the Coachella Valley since 2008 and is sure to delight. Actor and producer RJ Mitte stared in Triumph and played Walter “Flynn” White, Jr. on the AMC series Breaking Bad.

Karate Kids, who have been training hard for the World Karate Federation competitions, are part of the Paralympic Adaptive Karate Program and taught by Sensei Tamara Canedo. High Hopes Dance Troupe from Starlight Dance Center, which is comprised of talented youth 15 years and older with neurodevelopmental disorders, is certain to impress with their hip hop moves.

UCPIE’s mission is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities. Programs and services include in-home respite care, Skill Builders after school and summer camp, adaptive bike program, family empowerment, and resource and referral services. All services and programs provided by UCPIE are free of charge for families, thanks to generous sponsors and donors. As the pandemic has greatly increased the need for services for families, the community’s support and participation is greatly appreciated. See you there!

Tickets to the luncheon are $125 per person. For more information and sponsorships, contact Calista Vassios, Donor Development Manager, at calista@ucpie.org, call (760) 321.8184 x101 or visit www.ucpie.org.
