$8,000 raised in disability benefit
Hunan Manor announced that $8,000 was raised by about 300 people for the Disability Awareness Program at a benefit recently at the Columbia restaurant.
The program was established in 1979 with the support of the Howard County Board of Education to eliminate attitudinal barriers and stereotypes that prevent people with disabilities from reaching their potential.
Despite the success of the fund-raiser, the Disability Awareness Program remains in desperate need of money.
