The Pajama Walk on November 14 is a community walk to raise awareness and funds for Friendship Circle and ZABS Place, two local nonprofits that help children and young adults with special needs and special talents realize their dreams of living purposeful lives.
Friendship Circle provides social opportunities and peer mentoring for children and teens. ZABS Place is a thrift boutique offering on-the-job training that can lead to a fulfilling career.
Here are some highlights at this year’s Pajama Walk:
A display of unique creations of local crafters and artists with some seriously special talents! These unique items make great gifts and support inclusion and ability awareness (and of course, the artist!)
Yes, you heard that right! You’ll have an opportunity to finally show off those supercool pajamas you’ve been hiding away.
Special Talent Drum Circle
Led by the talented David Drum, our Friendship Circle Friends and our ZABS talent will lead an interactive drum circle to kick off the Pajama Walk.
Think of Candyland in a dream, moon bounces, obstacle courses, races, pajama games, face-painting, and more! There will also be a designated area for preschool-age kids with their very own bubble show.
Opening ceremonies begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Freedom Park Amphitheater.

Friendship Circle and ZABS Place are both beneficiary agencies of the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte.
