LDSS Announces Night of Champions to Honor Differently-abled Working Adults and Their Employers
(SAVANNAH, GA) The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) announces the sixth annual Night of Champions will be hosted Thursday, May 14 at 6 p.m. at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa – Hotel Grand Ballroom. This community celebration distinguishes local organizations that hire and retain differently-abled people, including those with Down syndrome, and recognizes the contributions made by these employees.
According to the National Down Syndrome Congress, 80 percent of the 15,000 people of working age (18-60) with Down syndrome are unemployed. Low expectations and a lack of understanding about the skills and work ethic many people with Down syndrome possess have contributed to this statistic. LDSS hopes to reverse this trend by encouraging Savannah area employers to give differently-abled workers a chance.
“Dignity and self-respect are borne out of feeling that what we have to offer makes a difference,” said LDSS Night of Champions Chairperson, Allyson Harvin.
This year’s Night of Champions will be emceed again by celebrity chef and author, Jamie Deen. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased online at nightofchampions.org
For more information, please contact Allyson Harvin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) is a family support group to benefit people with Down syndrome and their families through local leadership, outreach, education, and advocacy to champion and celebrate acceptance and inclusion. Meetings are held every 4th Tuesday of the month. LDSS is an affiliate of the National Down Syndrome Society. For more information about LDSS, visit http://www.ldssga.org/

Country music is a soundtrack of the south. With the artistry of vocalist and songwriter Amanda Lamb, the compass points to Southern California and the sun swept shores of Orange County. Amanda’s new single, “We Were Here,” is an invitation to a coastline drive and an exuberant nod to her West coast roots. Her wistful “Endless Summer” evokes a vivid panorama of rusted Woodies, shivering palm trees, abandoned surfboards and deserted cottages. “Somewhere the surf’s always up,” confirms this California girl.
Recorded in Nashville by eminent producer Kent Wells (noted for recent work with Dolly Parton) the tracks feature a skillful collective of Music City players supporting Amanda’s warm, confiding voice. Amanda sang live in the studio, bouncing her musical ideas off of enthusiastic players employing organic instruments. “I just love the vibe,” she says of the famous musical community, “Nashville has such an appreciation for original music.”
Working with accomplished collaborators Bill Diluigi and Melissa Bollea boosted Amanda’s confidence as a songwriter. She says that her lyrical mission is “To take a cliché that you hear everyday and twist it to make it personal and universal at the same time.”
Amanda Lamb discloses powerful truths in the song “Something in the Blood,” her personal homage to all of the inspirational people she has met who are living their lives with Type 1 diabetes, a condition that has been part of her reality since she was one year old. “The song is both literal and figurative,” says Amanda, “because there is strength, bravery and courage in my blood.”

Stephanie “THE LAKER GURL” Beard has become one of the hottest hosts on the JKN. She is spicy and spirited, a devoted PRINCE lover and extreme Laker fan. Her EVERYTHING LAKERS show is one of the most listened to shows on the network, the reason you find it featured quite often. Anyone that comes in contact with Stephanie will become attracted to her with her magnetic personality.
But don’t let her girlish/feminine style buffalo you. She will stand up to any situation and let you have it, so you better come prepared. If you were to look up FAN (fanatic) in the dictionary, you will see her face next to it, but only for the LAKERS. Wouldn’t she be called a different TEAM GIRL, if it were so?
