Events for 2014

In order to keep our services affordable for our folks and their families, Disability Resources Incorporated relies on special event fundraisers throughout the year. From a golf tournament, to hunting events, live concerts, and a pumpkin patch, DRI has events for young, old and everyone in between. Funds raised from our special events help support our wide range of services, therapies and other opportunities for the care and general well-being of our folks. DRI is so grateful for the faithful support of our donors and sponsors.
