It’s a free fundraiser? Really?
- *well, sort of. It is free to register. The BASH is a fundraiser, IM ABLE’s largest of the year. While you’re enjoying the food, drinks, live music by Blue Label, and meeting athletes of all abilities who have been empowered by IM ABLE, we hope you will choose to donate.
Are there rooms at the hotel for out-of-town guests?
- Yes. There is a block of rooms reserved for you at the DoubleTree. Below you will find the booking link. Also, you may call in with the three letter code “IAB.” Both the link and code will be active until 3/4/22. Click here to make your guest room accommodation for the IM ABLE Bash
What’s the dress code / Party Attire?
- We had to consult the internet for this one. Lindsey Love is a senior brand stylist and describes it as “dressy casual” or “smart casual.” “Wear what makes you feel fabulous,” she says. The event is St. Patrick’s Day theme so there’ll be some green but, most importantly, come prepared to dance the night away to Blue Label’s rockin’ tunes.
Chris Kaag, Founder and CEO says, “I usually wear a bow tie, dress shirt, suspenders but jeans, definitely jeans.”
What is the BASH?
The BASH is IM ABLE’s annual fundraising event. There’s appetizers, dinner, dancing, a brief program to show you the incredible things you’ve made possible over the last year. And, yes, of course, we’ll be asking for your support to help even more people in this upcoming year. And then back to the dancing.
Funds raised at this event help IM ABLE fulfill our mission to remove obstacles that prevent people with physical, cognitive, and/or behavioral challenges from living an active life. In our 15 years, we have found the two largest obstacles are the high cost of adaptive equipment and programming opportunities for people of all abilities. Your donations will help IM ABLE give adaptive equipment grants as well as provide inclusive programming.
We will also be honoring Rachel Kuhn as this year’s Motivator of the Year. Rachel was instrumental in laying the groundwork after IM ABLE was founded in 2007. Her efforts got us rolling and, because of her, thousands of people of all abilities have been empowered to get moving.

is it kid friendly?
This is a party (with a purpose) so it’s probably a good night to call the babysitter.
