Please join us for New Danville’s 2020 Spring Thing event, formerly known as Tea on the Lawn, benefitting New Danville on Friday, April 24, 2020, at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center.
New Name, New Location, and an Exciting New Program.
2020 marks New Danville’s 15th anniversary. As we celebrate this milestone, we want to send out a heartfelt thank you to our community partnerships for the work they have enabled us to do. Since our inception in 2005, our annual Spring event has generated much needed funds for our residential and day programs for adults with intellectual disabilities
This year’s speaker is Troy Ball, A Vanderbilt grad, former national equestrian champion, and the mother of
three sons—including two with special needs—Troy Ball and her business partner husband, Charlie, opened Troy & Sons Distillers in Asheville, North Carolina, making what some old-time shiners call “real good boot.” Join us as we hear her story of grace and grit is an inspiration. Her work with her eldest son,
Marshall, who is confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak, resulted in the publication of two books, including Kiss of God: The Wisdom of a Silent Child. She also cofounded Thoughtful House Center for Children (now named the Johnson Center) in Austin, Texas, for children with autism and other developmental disorders.
