The party will be held at the Lockamy Plantation, a farm in Angier that hosts weddings and other special events in an elaborate barn venue on the property.

"Originally, we had done a gala and it was another theme and when we brought the Christmas idea out there we had a lot of interest," Richardson said.

The Special Needs Christmas Party will feature Santa, presents, dancing, dinner, and other holiday surprises. Tickets are $5 to cover the cost of arts and crafts and other supplies while food and many other elements of the event are being donated by local businesses.

"It's for all ages, any special needs. It's open to everybody and their family," said Richardson. "So, if they have a sibling or grandparent or parent who wants to come, they are welcome as well."
