Host Evan Golden and Celebrity Bartender joined in Unicorn Children’s Foundation in raising a glass at the 2nd Annual Celebrity Bartender’s Battle for the awareness of Neurodiversity, which was held at the Farmer’s Table Boca Raton. Unicorn Children’s Foundation helps children and young adults who think, learn and communicate differently. There was stiff competition between the teams but for second year in a row team Bill Kruegel & Sarah Hassan took home the cup raising over $12,000 for the cause!
Unicorn Children’s Foundation is an international non-profit organization dedicated to children and young adults with developmental, communication, and learning disorders through education, awareness, and research so that they have every opportunity to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
Unicorn Children’s Foundation was founded in 1994 by Mark Rosenbloom, MD shortly after his three year old son was diagnosed with a severe communication disorder. Up until that time, he had been told by numerous professionals that his son, who was not yet speaking, would “grow out of it.” But he didn’t.
As a result of one misdiagnosis after another, many months of valuable therapies and intervention were lost. Out of his pain and frustration, and a wish to provide hope for all families with children who suffer from a developmental, communication or learning disorder, Unicorn Children’s foundation was born.
Unicorn Children’s Foundation’s key initiatives include: promoting early identification of symptoms associated with ADHD, autism, bipolar, dyslexia and other learning disorders; developing and disseminating worldwide ground-breaking and extensive evaluation and treatment guidelines; fostering communication and collaboration between parents, professionals and policy makers to promote learning and increased awareness; and to provide adequate tools and resources to better meet the needs of our beneficiaries.
