The 6th Annual Red & Black Blast

The 6th Annual Red & Black Blast was a huge success with 350 guests in attendance and raising over $90,000! Guests enjoyed bidding on silent auction prizes, celebrated the life-changing ATS programs and honored two amazing people.

Pam Green, Chief Executive Officer of Easterseals Redwood, received the Champion for Inclusion award and Dr. Stephen Kroeger, Associate Professor of Special Education, received the Chuck Altenau Outstanding Service award.

Guests also heard stories from our programs CEES and IMPACT, recognized our TAP seniors, and celebrated the 10th anniversary of TAP.

Thank you for partnering with us! All proceeds will benefit the ATS programs; CEES, IMPACT and TAP, to provide inclusive education, employment and social opportunities to improve outcomes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

If you weren’t able to join the festivities this year, we missed you and hope you will join us next year! In the meantime, please support ATS by connecting with us via social media, on our website, or by making a contribution!
