The Legacy School, a nonprofit private school in Sykesville for students with language-based learning disabilities, will host its first annual spring gala from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 28.
Called "A Night of Possibilities," the gala will include a full dinner, dancing, a video presentation and a talk by Debbie Phelps, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder advocate and educator.
Phelps will speak about helping her son, Olympic athlete Michael Phelps, rise above his ADHD diagnosis to become a champion swimmer.
Beer and wine will be available, along with a signature "Legacy cocktail."
Funds raised by the event will help the school expand "as it strives to offer more children with dyslexia, dysgraphia and ADHD a home base for learning."
The Legacy School, opened in 2011, educates students in first through eighth grades, providing a unique curriculum for each student.
The location is the Sykesville Freedom District Fire Department's Legacy Hall, 6680 Sykesville Road (Md. 32).
Tickets, which are $75, are available on the Legacy School's website, www.legacyschoolmd.org, and Facebook page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Both flat donations and business sponsorships are being accepted.
