    UPDATE! Due to inclement weather, the Mom and Dad's Night Out has been rescheduled to September 23rd. The plan for the 23rd is for the event to still be held outdoors, but if there is bad weather again, we have the new Deer Springs Winery Barn available to us as well so there will be plenty of room to spread out. Thanks for your understanding!

    Join other moms and dads raising a child with special needs to chat about life, surviving COVID quarantines, and all the recent joys and trials that go along with it!

    This special combined Mom and Dad's Night Out event will be hosted in partnership with DSAF and Autism Family Network. And what better way to spend an evening away than outdoors (or in the new barn!) at the beautiful Deer Springs Winery.  

    When: September 23 from 7:00-9:00pm

    Where: Deer Springs Winery
    16255 Adams, Lincoln, NE 68527

    Who: Moms and dads raising a child of any age with Down syndrome or Autism
    (Feel free to bring a friend or family member if that makes it more comfortable for you to come!)

    DSAF and AFN will provide appetizers. Drinks and additional food will be paid for by attendees. Please RSVP so we have an idea of how many to expect. 

    Please Note: Childcare will NOT be provided.
