In Loving Memory of  Flynn Thomas Fry

Tribute 21 Gala

In 2013, Tribute 21 Fund hosted its first gala to celebrate the life of Flynn Thomas Fry. In his short life, Flynn touched the lives of many and he continues to inspire us to respect, appreciate and love people with differing abilities.

For seven years, hundreds of guests have come together to celebrate and raise funds to support programs and individuals with Down syndrome. While COVID-19 kept us apart last year, we are grateful to have a new and amazing outdoor venue available this year to bring us together to celebrate in a fun and safe way. This year’s event will be held at GIGS Courtyard and will feature performances by the JOY Cheerleaders, Sean Chyun, the 19th Street Band, Ella Turgeon, and our amazing Keynote Self Advocate speaker Carmen Houston-Ludlam.

In an effort to do our part to keep the community safe, and in line with current industry standards, we will require all attendees to show proof of full vaccination upon entry at Tribute 21.

If you have registered for more than one ticket, please make sure that all ticket holders in your party are aware of our policy and are prepared to show their vaccination status. Ticket holders who arrive at the venue without proof of full vaccination will be denied entry without a refund.

Our hope is that this policy will allow all guests to have a safe and enjoyable experience and keep our community as safe as possible.


In 2018, more than 600 guests gathered to celebrate the life of Flynn Thomas Fry at The Mellon Auditorium. We are excited to share details and pictures from this Flynntastic event by clicking the recap button to the right.
