The 4th Annual Summer Social - 2018

IN!'s 2018 Summer Social was the largest yet!

The event raised $101,000 to support inclusive college opportunities in Colorado for students with intellectual disabilities! With nearly 250 guests, we've outgrown yet another venue; a wonderful problem to have. 

Our keynote speakers captivated the crowd with their stories of personal development in college.

Jazmine Murphy receives the IN!spirational Person of the Year Award

Jazmine, a student at Arapahoe Community College, recently completed her Certified Nursing Assistance (CNA) licensure. We recognize her for her dedication to her dreams and continued academic pursuits. Mary Holm, IN! Board President, presented the award. 

Tammy Abramovitz lights up the room once again!

IN! thanks Tammy for her continued support, serving as our emcee, and her incredible decorating skills. Tammy brings a unique spark to every room she enters! 

Thank you to all of our volunteers! We were fortunate to have help ranging from volunteer coordination to graphic design, and much more. A warm thank you to Helene Carmona Schmidt for Chairing IN!'s Summer Social!
