Holiday Extravaganza


Turning Pointe has the perfect gift for you this season.

As tangible evidence of goals accomplished by our students, beautiful gifts and wares will be for sale at our Holiday Extravaganza on December 12.

You can enjoy yourself and gift-glazed pottery, holiday cards and sensory snow globes while our students enjoyed developing their expressive language, fine motor and multimodal listening skills to create these works of art! Students improved their coping and communicating abilities and you improved the sight of your (or your friend’s) cupboard or bookshelf.

Turning Pointe’s Holiday Extravaganza will feature Hot Cocoa from our Made to Inspire Cafe and a visit from a bearded man from the North. Please join us from 1 to 5PM at 1500 W. Ogden Ave. in Naperville. Also attending will be some students eager to practice greeting and interacting with each of you. It will be the highlight of your season to witness how hard they will work to win your patronage. It may even inspire you this magical time of year!

As an added benefit, the Rotary Club of Naperville Downtown has issued a challenge to Turning Pointe. The generous Rotarians will match our proceeds from the sale up to $1,000! That is a lot of reindeer chow, mugs and birdhouses for us to sell; but given all our students have overcome to celebrate the holiday season, with your help, this will be an easy hurdle for us.

Proceeds from the Holiday Extravaganza will be used to support ongoing vocational training opportunities. From our Uniquely Pawfect dog treats and Made to Inspire Cafe enterprises to assembly and packaging work, Turning Pointe students are learning and earning their way. We know that at the Holiday Extravaganza, they will earn your favorable rating as a preferred source of holiday gifts.

Happy shopping and, more importantly, happy holidays to you and yours!
