Patchwork Benefit Helps Children With Rare Genetic Disorders


The DDC Clinic – Center for Special Needs Children will hold the 18th annual Patchwork Benefit on April 14, 2018 at the Family Life Center located in Bainbridge.  Tickets are available on the website of DDC Clinic at http://DDCCLINIC.org or by calling DDC Clinic at 440-632-1668.

“The Patchwork Benefit is the coming together of Amish and non-Amish communities, and the many partners and supporters that helped us develop a special place for those with complex special needs” said Blake Andres, executive director of DDC Clinic. “The continued generosity of our donors enables us to conduct genetic research and testing, make new discoveries and provide the life-changing diagnoses and treatments that significantly impact the lives of special children.”

Last year’s event raised $91,000 to support the clinic’s mission to enhance the quality of life for children with rare genetic disorders.  More than 250 guests attended the evening to enjoy food provided by Heinen’s catering, a live and silent auction along with a large basket raffle.  This event is one of two large fundraisers locally for DDC Clinic.
