Masquerade Ball 2014



March 22, 2014

Rochester Plaza Hotel



Stepping Stones Learning Center is a not-for-profit, family centered program for children birth to 21 years of age with and without special needs. Through our community, clinic, youth and early childhood classroom programs, we have developed unique environments where an acceptance of diversity promotes an atmosphere where children learn and grow together and from each other.


Each year, the spring fundraising gala held to benefit Stepping Stones Learning Center raises significant funds to help children in our community. Over 200 friends and supporters attend our gala event to celebrate our accomplishments and to contribute to our future success.



This year, we are proud to announce our 2nd Annual Masquerade Ball.



This black-tie optional gala event will feature live music provided by Up 2 Something, dancing, entertainment, gaming tables provided by The Dealers, a silent auction, and a live auction with

Guest MC's Dino Kay from Fickle 93.3. & 13 WHAM's Jennifer Johnson


We will be honoring our 2014 Community Award recipient, Joe Morelle, for his exemplary work as an advocate for inclusion for children with varying levels of special needs.


Because this event is so important to our annual fundraising goal, we are launching new sponsor levels and benefits.

Details of the sponsorship opportunities and benefits can be found on the Masquerade Sponsor Opportunities link located at the top right of this page.  If you are interested in becoming a Table Captain or placing a Program Ad in our event program those forms are located at the top left of this page.


We invite you to partner with us to make this event a fundraising and friend-raising success.  


Your sponsorship will help fund programs and services for children of varying levels of need: special education; speech, occupational, physical and music therapies; Autism services, both ABA and SCERTS; social work services; psychological and behavioral services.


Marketing: We will conduct promotional outreach including a radio interview on (station) and print advertising. There will be ample website coverage of the event and we will be on every community calendar.


On Facebook, we will generate a buzz with a daily ‘Mystery Mask’ contest to guess the person behind the mask- a celebrity or well-known SSLC staff member.


Thank you for your support of children in our community.
