CWTC PATHWAY AWARDS SEPTEMBER 12th!

Join us for a very special Pathway Awards and Dinner, Tuesday September 12th at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center in East Peoria. We are having a "baseball" theme this year, so we are asking our attendees to sport their favorite major league baseball team apparel or team colors. We will be honoring our "All-Stars", the consumers, that have made extraordinary achievements this year and our "fans", community partners, that have supported us throughout the year. To help make this a successful event, we would love to have all our friends, families, and community members join us in making this a "World Series Event!”

Cocktails begin at 5:00PM, with the dinner and program starting at 6:00PM. Make reservations with Leslie Buhl or Michele Elmore. You can also get more information and register HERE

Congratulations to Jeff, one of CWTC’s consumers taking part in the Inspiring Arts Abilities program.
