Signature Breakfast to be held April 20
CICOA’s eighth annual Signature Breakfast, presented by Comfort Keepers, will be held April 20, 7:30-9 a.m. at the 502 East Event Centre in Carmel, Ind. Jason Fechner, anchor, host and reporter at WRTV6, the ABC affiliate in Indianapolis, will serve as the master of ceremonies. Sharing the keynote address that day are Jane and Brandon Scott.
When Jane had her first child 27 years ago, she wasn’t prepared for what followed. Her son, Brandon, was born without arms or legs. It’s such a rare condition, there is no name for it. Jane and her husband made an important decision: Rather than let their son feel sorry for himself, they were going to help him be as independent as possible. Today, Brandon is a college graduate, has a job, drives a car and recently got married.
The fundraising event consists of a free breakfast followed by the Scotts’ message and an opportunity for attendees to make a donation to fund services for older adults, people with disabilities and family caregivers. CICOA also will present the annual Caregiver of the Year Award, which honors one personal caregiver in Central Indiana who models courage, sacrifice, strength and creativity while caring for another. To RSVP, call (317) 803-6034 before April 7 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
