Fundraiser helps children living with disabilities

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The stars of the fundraiser were children with special needs, and they performed like real pros.

The Allegro Foundation helps kids with disabilities by providing special programs and educational activities.

Organizers hope the silent auction and raffle raise a half million dollars. It's especially important now as grant money levels have decreased in the sour economy

"At some point all of us will have a disability and we need to have our younger generation learn compassion for those with disabilities," said Mimi Fitz, chairperson of the Ambassador Ball.
