Special Parent's Afternoon Out - Fall 2017
Saturday, October 14th, 2017 (Noon - 3pm)

As parents of a special needs child we have learned over the years of the absolute necessity to take time out of our busy schedules to ‘recharge our batteries’ and invest quality time into our marriage relationship so that we can maintain a strong foundation for meeting the physical and emotional needs of our special needs child.  All too often it becomes difficult or next to impossible for parents of special needs children to take these needed breaks due to a lack of qualified child care and/or the disposable income to treat themselves to an afternoon or night out.  In the spirit of meeting this need, in 2009, my wife Denise and I founded Special-Parents.org (  www.special-parents.org ) .  

Once again (our 16th  semi-annual event!), Special-Parents.org (  www.special-parents.org), The Church of The Hills (   www.tcoth.org ) and the Matheny School (matheny.org) have partnered with local restaurants in the Chester, Mendham and Bedminster, NJ area to sponsor a complimentary “Special Parent’s Afternoon (Lunch) Out” on Saturday, Ocotber 14th,  2017, from Noon to 3pm, while their children are cared for and entertained by loving and qualified volunteers.

Buy a lunch!!  - $40 treats one set of parents! Over 150 Guest Families and over 300 guest children expected at our October 14th Event! Over two dozen activities planned for the kids.  To learn more or volunteer visit  www.special-parents.org
