Event Description:
Donations go to Project Opportunity, which is housed at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt and provides employment opportunities within the entire Vanderbilt community to young adults with developmental disabilities.

The goal of Project Opportunity is to fill a business need with qualified individuals with developmental disabilities. Since Project Opportunity began in 2005, 20 individuals with disabilities have been placed into regular full- and part-time positions at Vanderbilt.
