Annual Great Nose-On Luncheon held at Century Center
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Green noses were spotted around South Bend Tuesday for the annual Great LOGAN Nose-On Luncheon..
A 1,000 people attended the sold out event at the Century Center in South Bend.
The LOGAN Center came up with the fun idea in 1988, selling green noses to raise money and awareness for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Keynote Speaker at today’s luncheon, Chris Ulmer, is the founder of Special Books by Special Kids which is a multi-media movement which spreads acceptance and awareness for neuro-diverse people.
“Inclusion isn’t just about doing something for someone that has a disability. It’s about realizing once that person with a diagnosis is part of the community, we all win and we all benefit," said Ulmer.
The not-for-profit organization offers opportunities and resources to help improve the quality of life for neuro-diverse people and their families.
