Toast, Taste, and Transform Lives!

Perfect Pairings 2024 is Thursday, August 29th at Capital Plaza Hotel.

Special Learning Center’s Perfect Pairings is a unique evening filled with imaginative pairings that will excite and ignite the palates! This interactive event showcases a mingling of food, beverage, and entertainment. Popular and prominent members of our community will host stations with traditional (and not-so-traditional) pairings! Interactions are combined with a spirit pull, as well as a bountiful charcuterie board at each guest table. Final pairing of the evening will feature a live auction where guests are paired with wishes of a Special Learning Center child. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend this annually sold-out event, and show your support for children in our community.

Doors open at 5:00 p.m. Pairings begins at 5:30 p.m.

SLC’s 2023 Perfect Pairings was a TREMENDOUS success and raised nearly $150,000! The support Special Learning Center receives from the Jefferson City area community is overwhelming. THANK YOU to all our sponsors, volunteers, guests, and very kind donors for everything you did to help make our event spectacular. Children with disabilities in Central Missouri will be directly impacted by your generosity. We can’t thank you enough. Enjoy the photos below from last year’s event!
