Join us for the musical event of the fall season! Now in its 10th year, WIDs Ever Widening Circle will be bigger and better than ever with an evening of entertainment provided by world-class performers in the Emelyn K. Jewett Ballroom at the downtown Oakland Marriott on Friday, November 7, 2008. This year, Ever Widening Circle will feature the Grammy Award-winning talents of The Blind Boys of Alabama, revered worldwide for their unique blend of the sacred and the secular.
Members of the Bay Area community and beyond will come together to celebrate disability culture and reaffirm our pride in being home to the internationally recognized World Institute on Disability. The evening will include a retrospective of 25 years of WIDs accomplishments, and attendees will sample offerings from Sweet Indulgence-- sumptuous desserts, coffee and tea.
Individual tickets are available for $75, groups of 10 or more may purchase their tickets for $70.
Due to the generosity of our sponsors a limited number of tickets are available at the nonprofit rate of $45.
The success and visibility of Ever Widening Circle is the result of the strong collaborative ties between WID and its partners and sponsors. We invite you to join with us in our commitment to disability rights and support this gala event.
