On 11/4/2011 Chloe attended the St. Anthony Opportunity Award Banquet in Pittsburgh, PA at Heinz Field where I, Chloe's dad, received an award for advocacy. Chloe met with the Bishop of Pittsburgh David Zubick, and she showed her abilities to the 600 people in attendance. Chloe is a big fan of Elvis Presley, and she called the Bishop a "Hunk a Hunk of Burning Love!" Bishop Zubick and I spoke to the large audience about what a priceless Blessing children with Down syndome are to this world, and Chloe planted many positive seeds at the event. Chloe also met with the President of the Pittsburgh Pirates who is a big supporter of children with special needs, and she connected with many other VIPs in the community. Chloe at age 8 has already become a very strong advocate for all children with Down syndrome and their families, and she has shown us all that the "Smallest Voice can Make the Largest Impact!"
