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.

  • Pumpkin Patch - Entire month of October
    The Pumpkin Patch is an annual fundraiser for DRI. For the whole month of October, seven days a week, our DRI folks and staff, along with hundreds of volunteers, work the Patch. The DRI lawn is decorated with props, swings, hay bales and thousands of pumpkins. The pumpkins come in all sizes…from small pie pumpkins to huge 80 pound pumpkins. School groups and children of all ages come out to our campus to take part in the free hayrides around the campus, enjoy story time, purchase their pumpkins, and take pictures. Last year, over 10,000 people visited during the month to purchase their fall pumpkins and take advantage of the wonderful photo opportunities. The patch is open to the public daily. Large groups please call to reserve your time. 325-677-6815
