Next Steps at Vanderbilt exceeded its fundraising goal of $2,000 at its young professionals mixer event at Bar Louie in downtown Nashville on Oct. 22. The fundraiser was the organization’s first attempt to “target the Nashville community at large,” according to program coordinator Kelly Wendel.
“It was a great night of community-building that resulted in people not only giving donations, but also offering their time and talent to benefit the program,” Wendel wrote in an email to The Hustler. “We are excited to tap into these new resources!”
Next Steps is a two-year postsecondary education program for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The program focuses on increasing participants’ vocational, social and independent living skills, according to Wendel.
