X Kids Extravaganza!
Come on down, people. It may have been a hard year, but we are still here! This is a night to celebrate the resilience, courage, warmth and generosity of our parents, as well as the encouraging strides that Extreme Kids & Crew has been making. Space No. 1 has now been open for over a year! We’ve recorded about 3,000 visits! Over 300 families from all five boroughs have participated in our arts & movement programming! The time has come to throw a party that none of us will forget.

Bilal will play. Eli Janney will spin. Sam Erickson will show a new movie featuring Extreme Kids & Crew’s super kids. Art. Auction. Plus: Dancing. Drinking. Eating. Shimmying away your stress.

Please remember that we cannot support ourselves unless we fundraise. Because we believe that all families, regardless of disability or income, should be able to participate in our events, classes and membership, we charge on a sliding scale. Approximately half of our members and participants use the sliding scale. Even for families who pay a full fee, we keep costs to a bare minimum, as we understand how expensive and stressful raising a child with a disability can be.We don’t get any government money. We get a little bit through foundations. Almost all of our funding comes from individual donors, so please, give, and get others to give! Tickets are 90% tax deductible.

From his wide vocal range, to his genre-bending albums, to his phenomenal live performances, Bilal is a total-package artist who has been well received, both nationally and internationally. In 2011, Bilal received a Grammy nomination for the song Little One, a track dedicated to his eldest son, Bashir, who has autism, and who many of you may know–he’s an Extreme Kid! Bilal dedicated his summer tour to his son, naming it the Little Ones Tour and raising money for autism awareness. And he’s playing the X Kids Extravaganza!
