WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Wabash Center celebrated decades of helping people with disabilities and special needs. Friday, the gala welcomed community members for dancing, a silent auction and dinner.

The Wabash Center offers a variety of services, including a day program and residential services. Proceeds will benefit those families involved with the Wabash Center.

Jason McManus is president and CEO of Wabash Center. He said these community events are important to the success of families they help every day.

"We obviously rely on the generosity and support of many members in the community. It's really important to us," said McManus. "We provide what we consider to be a very high level quality of service, and we can't do that without generous donations and support of the wonderful community members who will be here tonight."

The silent auction included signed uniforms from professional athletes, including Al Jefferson of the Indiana Pacers.

The Wabash Center also honored a local family with its Spirit of Service award.
