Developmentally disabled adults get red carpet experience in Ridgewood


JULY 24, 2015    LAST UPDATED: FRIDAY, JULY 24, 2015, 1:14 PM

The Park West Tavern Loft will host a special event for developmentally disabled people Friday night.

The event, titled “Club LOU ’15 Summer Blast,” will feature dancing and fun as the participants are taken out for a “night on the town.”

Life Opportunities Unlimited, a Ridgewood-based charity, is the driving force behind the occasion.

“Life Opportunities Unlimited is a human service agency that provides residential and day program services to adults that have developmental disabilities,” said Gail Tamirian-Mandeli, head of the organization.

The charity, founded in 1995, has a number of homes throughout area towns and a day program in Ridgewood.

People from all over will be coming to the event, giving the participants an opportunity to meet new friends.

“From living in our group and other agencies’ group homes, to living in the community with their parents, to living on their own in Orchard Commons in Allendale, people come from every place,” Tamirian-Mandeli said.
