Central Florida's Talent Showcase

Central Florida’s Talent Showcase launched it's inaugural event on September 2014 with High Caliber Vocalists and Dancers! They hit the stage for not only the opportunity to win the First Prize of $1,000 or the People’s Choice Award of $500, but also to champion our mission to enrich the lives of children and young adults with special needs. Our Second Annual Event is scheduled for September 2015. Go to Talentshow.SupportDreamBig.org for more details or to buy a ticket.

Bowling for Dreams

Our Bowling Events have been family centered and just plain fun! We started with Bowling for Dreams in 2012 and then Co-Hosted the Bowling Bonanza with Our Backyard Foundation in 2013. We plan to continue our bowling event to continue raising funds for the Russell Home and the Down Syndrome Foundation. Keep tabs on us on Facebook for upcoming bowling event details.

Our generous sponsors have made it possible for children and young adults with special needs to bowl for free and have made our raffles and silent auctions a great success! We look forward to seeing our returning families, friends, colleagues and sponsors, as well the meeting newcomers at the next Bowling for Dreams!


Yearly since 2013.

This high energy event is sponsored by Giselle and her Z-Crew from Dance Fit Orlando! The Zumbathon is held every year in April which is Autism Awareness month. All the participants come each year with a vigor that is contagious and they do it to raise funds for the Dream Big Scholarship Fund. See you there next April! Event details will be posted on Facebook.

Plans for the future:

Dream Big, Inc. plans to hold quarterly social events for the residents of the Russell Home, the members of the Down Syndrome Foundation, and for the residents of Central Florida which will include activity based socials, like the Ice-Cream Social we hosted at the Russel Home in October 2013.
