The event will be on February 10, 2023 at Unity Baptist Church in Sylvester and will be an evening full of dancing, karaoke, food, limo rides and more! There is no fee to attend. Guests will have the opportunity to enter on the red carpet, be paired with a buddy to party with them throughout the night, and be crowned as a queen/king for the night. We will have a sensory room set up for any individuals that would like a quiet space/sensory activities or need a break throughout the night. We will also have a respite room that parents/caregivers are welcome to utilize if they would like to stay while their individuals have fun at the dance. If you know of any individuals that would like to attend or volunteers that would like to assist the night of the event, please have them complete the appropriate Google forms that are linked below. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have and hope you will share this information to anyone you think may be interested.

Albany - REO Speedwagon is coming to the Albany Civic Center on Wednesday, April 12th. Tickets start at $39.50 plus applicable fees and go on-sale Friday, January 27th at 10:00am. Tickets are available at The Georgia's Own Credit Union Box Office located at the Albany Civic Center and ticketmaster.com.
Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon’s unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and radio staples soon followed, setting the stage for the release of the band’s explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles “Keep On Loving You” and “Take It On the Run.” That landmark album spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot and has since earned the RIAA’s coveted 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States. Today, REO Speedwagon has sold more than 40 million albums around the globe, and Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (guitar), and Bryan Hitt (drums) are still electrifying audiences worldwide in concert with hits and fan-favorites such as “In Your Letter,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Time For Me To Fly,” “Roll With The Changes,” the aforementioned “Keep On Loving You” and “Take It On the Run,” and many, many more.
