DASA Fundraising Events
If you’ve never attended a DASA fundraiser, you’re missing out! We have a spectacular selection of fun dinners, street parties, auctions, wine tastings, Texas Hold ‘Em tournaments, Oktoberfest, and so much more.
Since DASA receives a large amount of its funding from annual fundraising events hosted either by DASA or our great friends and supporters in our local community, these events make it possible for us to help individuals with disabilities improve their quality of life through sports and fitness, build a community of peers, gain independence, and thrive. Without these events and our sponsors, we could not do what we do.
